Business Solution Evaluation

The neutrals at IDR have years of experience in helping their clients structure business solutions to disputes. In business versus business litigation we encourage the parties to consider a Business Solution Evaluation (’BSE’).

Where appropriate we ask the parties to provide more than the typical mediation statements which only focus on the merits of the parties claims and defenses and the amount of alleged damages. We ask them to provide on a confidential basis:

  • A brief history of the business relationship between the parties;
  • A description of the dispute that led to the litigation;
  • A statement as to the circumstances under which they would continue to do business with the other party; and
  • The parties’ early thoughts on possible business resolutions to the dispute.

The neutrals at IDR will then work with the parties to fashion a business workout of their dispute.
