Mediating Shareholder Disputes
At FULMER | MAY | STUCKEY Birmingham Alabama attorneys, we take great pride in providing our clients with a wide variety of legal services. We do our best to keep our rates at affordable prices too. If you’re unfamiliar with mediation, a form of arbitration, let’s explain it in detail.
What is Mediation?
Birmingham, Alabama law firm – FULMER | MAY | STUCKEY – can guide clients through the mediation process and attempt to achieve conciliation in a legal dispute. What do we mean by this?
In simple terms, mediation is a way of getting parties who are disputing an area of the law to achieve a resolution, without needing expensive attorneys and court hearings. If we can achieve the result by mediation, we can save you a lot of money – and that’s what we like to do when parties in a dispute seek arbitration.
We’ve helped many Birmingham corporate and commercial clients through mediation, with great success.
How Mediation Works
Mediation is actually a simple process – depending upon the dispute in question – where the parties involved in the dispute sit down with a mediator to try reaching an agreement. At FULMER | MAY | STUCKEY we have attorneys who are experienced in the mediation and arbitration process in Birmingham.
The benefits of meditation are many. It doesn’t require the expense of litigation and drawn out court cases. A good mediator will ensure both parties reach a satisfactory resolution. Also, it gives the client far more say in the outcome because they negotiate the resolution.
Mediation is a preferred method of resolution in collaborative proceedings, as it keeps the personal details behind closed doors. If you think that our mediation services could be of use to you, get in touch with us right now and one of our mediation team members will be happy to answer your questions during a free initial consultation.

FULMER | MAY | STUCKEY can provide you with services and experience in business mediation. We’ll help you sort out any commercial or corporate disputes you may have.

Using Corporate Council
You can choose to solve your business dispute in court, using the full force of the law. In this case, we can provide you with one of the lawyers on our team of attorneys to handle the case and take it through the court process. However, as we mentioned above, many businesses choose to settle disputes via mediation, especially when they cannot afford to take it to court.
It’s worth remembering that mediation is in everyone’s best interests. The parties in the dispute set the solution themselves in mediation. An experienced mediator helps ensure it’s all above board and within the law. Everything can be sorted out far more quickly than if you have to wait for a court date.
