The ABI Journal article “On the Edge,”...
Mediation is a smart and effective way to resolve bankruptcy disputes. Mediation avoids expensive, time-consuming and prolonged court proceedings, and unlike confrontational winner-take-all litigation, it allows all parties involved to feel like they’ve received a fair outcome. And it does so in a way that is neutral, respectful and allows for more control over the process.
U.S. bankruptcy courts are increasingly welcoming the use of mediators to resolve conflict and achieve resolution in bankruptcy matters. Mediation can be used to settle single claims between debtors and creditors or resolve complex, multi-party disputes. While the benefits of using a neutral, third-party mediator to help resolve bankruptcy disputes are many, the mediator must have strong expertise in bankruptcy law to be successful.

Ehrenberg brings his broad knowledge and in-depth understanding of all facets of bankruptcy proceedings to the firm’s mediation services.
