Nassau County Bar Association
Mediation Panels Here to Help
These are difficult times for everyone, the small (and not so small) business, landlords, tenants, employers and their employees, suppliers whose customers have been forced to shutter their doors and those who cannot fulfill their contracts because of shortages in inventory. The list grows daily as do the obligations that can no longer be fulfilled. Whether a contract clause designed to excuse a party from performing its obligations (if there is any) is applicable or not only adds to the potential issues for dispute. What is not open to dispute is the fact that when business re-opens, the last thing anyone should have to contend with is potential litigation. Time, money, and effort is best spent ensuring businesses are up and running as quickly as possible. The ability to preserve business relationships through the use of mediation and neutral facilitation will enable business to move forward perhaps with new opportunities.
The Nassau County Bar Association’s Mediation Panel was originally established to provide Alternative Dispute Resolution to members of the Community and the Bar at reasonable rates. That pledge remains even more critical now, as businesses throughout Nassau County will continue to face difficult times. NCBA’s panel of mediators / neutral facilitators, are experienced in the law, have extensive mediation training, and have all been screened by the Nassau County Bar Association Judiciary Committee.
