Engaging in Meditation to Resolve Business Disputes
Dispute Attorney in South Florida
In Florida, all parties in a civil litigation case are required by the court to attend mediation prior to trial. If you are involved in a commercial litigation matter or a business dispute, consider choosing a qualified Supreme Court-certified mediator, who is also an experienced business and commercial litigation attorney, to represent you and your business.

Understanding the Advantages of Mediation
Mediation is the preferred method for business dispute resolution because the parties in the dispute can maintain control and confirm the result of the process. Rather than leaving the outcome of a dispute to a judge or jury, parties are able to work toward a resolution in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Taking your case to trial is expensive and time-consuming due to legal research, discovery (depositions) and motion practice, while the mediation process is usually limited to a one-day event with a significant reduction of exposure to the continued expense of prolonged litigation.
Assisting in All Stages of the Mediation Process
As your mediator, acting as a neutral party, Mr. Loomar will review the claims that each party has and explain the procedures for the day. He will then identify the issues and work with the parties to determine potential solutions and methods to reach an agreement for resolution. It is not up to the mediator to choose the solution, but rather to help guide, promote and facilitate the parties toward an amicable, productive and positive solution that works for everyone involved.
In a mediation proceeding, the parties may meet or “caucus” with the mediator privately to disclose any information about the dispute, which they do not wish the other parties to hear, and all information disclosed during a caucus is confidential. Furthermore, any offers or counteroffers made throughout the mediation process are also completely confidential.
