In today’s business world, disputes and conflicts are a common occurrence. When parties in a commercial dispute cannot find a resolution on their own, they often turn to a commercial mediator for assistance such Ken Strongman. As a commercial mediator I am a neutral third party who facilitates communication and negotiation between the parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable agreement. In this blog post, I will discuss the role of a commercial mediator and how they can benefit your business.

The Role of a Commercial Mediator

The role of a commercial mediator is to help parties in a dispute reach a resolution that is mutually acceptable. The mediator does not take sides or make decisions for the parties. Instead, they facilitate communication and negotiation between the parties to help them find common ground. A commercial mediator’s role is to listen to both parties’ concerns and guide them towards finding a solution that meets their needs.

Benefits of Using a Commercial Mediator

Using a commercial mediator has many benefits for businesses. Here are a few:

Saves Time and Money

Commercial mediation is typically less expensive and time-consuming than going to court. Mediation can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for all parties involved, and it is often resolved within a few sessions.

Preserves Relationships

Mediation can help preserve business relationships that might otherwise be destroyed by the dispute. Since mediation focuses on finding a mutually acceptable solution, it is often easier for parties to continue working together after the dispute is resolved.


 Mediation is a private process, and the parties can agree to keep the details of the dispute confidential. This can be particularly important for businesses that want to avoid negative publicity or damage to their reputation. Confidentiality is enforced by law.


Parties in mediation have more control over the outcome than they would in court. In mediation, the parties have the power to craft a solution that meets their unique needs and interests.


Commercial mediation is a valuable tool for businesses that are involved in a dispute. My role as a commercial mediator is to help parties communicate and negotiate in a way that leads to a mutually acceptable solution. By using a commercial mediator, such as myself, businesses can save time and money, preserve relationships, maintain confidentiality, and retain control over the outcome. If your business is involved in a dispute, consider using a commercial mediator to help you find a resolution.
