Arts Industry Mediation

Mediation is becoming an increasingly popular way of resolving disputes between entertainment industry entities, whether they be artist-manager disputes, artist-label disputes, filmmaker-studio disputes, co-producer disputes, producer-director disputes, disputes with distributors, etc.

When it works, mediation can save all parties substantial attorneys fees and litigation costs.  Additionally, it can help resolve the dispute in a manner that does not cause irreparable damage to the relationship so the parties can continue working together if they choose so to do.

In a situation where there is significant power imbalance between the parties, they may wish to be represented by counsel.  Collaborative law is something to consider in this case, because in the collaborative law process the parties are each represented by their own attorney who is able to help them express their respective positions.
