Previous Clients

(the non-confidential list)

Going to court is almost like going to war--

both sides usually lose. Most costly disputes can be prevented through the creation of systems that align incentives with desired behaviors. Integrated conflict management systems are able to reduce employee turnover, improve the client or patient experience, and ensure a pleasant working environment for all. When disputes arise, the application of appropriate interventions can significantly reduce the costs for all parties while enhancing or preserving any desired relationships.


In many cases it helps to call in an outside, neutral expert to facilitate the prevention and resolution of conflicts. Conflict is a normal part of life, but litigation is not. Act early to reap the greatest benefits of conflict resolution techniques and processes.
