Mediation is a process where, with the assistance of a trained neutral
mediator, parties in dispute attempt to reach a settlement that is
acceptable to everyone. If successful, mediation can be cost-effective and
far less time-consuming than litigation while, at the same time, removing
the uncertainty and risk inherent in litigation. Today, more and more,
parties are incorporating mediation provisions in their commercial
agreements, which may even enable the parties to avoid litigation. In
addition, many state and federal courts are directing parties to mediation
after the commencement of a lawsuit.
Bart J. Eagle serves as a mediator of disputes between parties in conflict.
He is on the American Arbitration Association’s Roster of Mediators, the roster of mediators of the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York County, and the panel of mediators of the New York City Bar Association’s Co-op and Condo Mediation Project.
He is also a member of the New York State Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section and Mediation Committee and the New York City Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee.
The deep perspective that Bart J. Eagle has on the litigation process and the objectives of the parties involved when they approach mediation enables him to engage the parties in a constructive effort to resolve the dispute. Productive, quality discussions ensue, which enable the parties to develop a mutually acceptable solution for themselves.
