At OGRLAW we are convinced that alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, among others, mediation, are an efficient means to resolve disputes and strengthen long term relationships between employees, suppliers, clients and shareholders.

Moreover, mediation is an ideal mechanism to solve disputes in which personal and family relationships are involved, such as disputes among shareholders or partners of family-owned companies, among family members and spouses, as well as many others.

Mediation may result useful to solve disputes in an early stage, or once that the dispute has been submitted to a judicial or arbitral proceeding. Currently, there are laws in Mexico that allow for the settlement agreement reached through mediation to receive the qualification of res judicata and become enforceable.

We offer our clients the following services:

a) Design of dispute resolution strategies through negotiation and mediation.

b) Private mediators who facilitate the communication between the parties so that a satisfactory solution of their dispute may be achieved.

c) Party counsel in private mediations or before Court Annexed Mediation Centers in Mexico.

d) Design of corporate in-house mediation procedures, as well as dispute resolution guidelines.

Recent experiences:

  • Design of an in-house mediation procedure for an automotive company.
  • Acting as mediators in disputes of the same corporate group.
  • Legal advice to a company of the telecommunications sector in proceedings before several national Court Annexed Mediation Centers, as well as in the drafting of the settlement agreements deriving therefrom.
