Contractual disputes arise when either party feels that the other did not adequately perform his part of the contract.
The types of contracts which are suitable for mediations range from formal, written contracts to informal, verbal contracts. Contracts specify that one party will provide services, or a product, in exchange for the other party’s compensation.
Disputes arise when either party feels that the other did not adequately perform his part of the contract. Often, the service or product did not meet the expected degree of quality or timeliness of delivery. Other disputes arise when the amount and timeliness of the reimbursement is in question.
Successful mediations of these disputes result when each party has an opportunity to fully explain his position, vent his feelings, and hear the other party do the same. The terms of such mediations may include an agreement that the provider replace or improve the product, or changes of the amount of reimbursement, or a combination of both.
