Legal Innovators and Leading Industry Players Announce Plans to Help CompaniesAmicably Resolve COVID-19 Disputes in a No-Fault Environment 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — May 6, 2020 — Legal Innovators today announced its participation in an upcoming webinar, “Getting Your Business Past COVID-19: Resolving Disputes Through One-Stop Mediation” on May 13th at 4:00 p.m. EDT, together with FTI Consulting, The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (“CPR”), Morril ADR, and J. Greenblatt International Disputes PLLC. 

Significant commercial disputes are likely to arise from COVID-19 in a no-fault environment. As small- to medium-sized businesses consider their options, they will need to consider their legal and economic rights and obligations. Litigation is unattractive. It is expensive, time consuming and slow. This webinar will help today’s business leaders understand their options and present a creative and cost-effective path of mediation to reach sensible commercial resolutions that enable businesses to move forward. 

“All businesses, but particularly small to medium sized ones are facing uncertain and, frankly, scary times. Unfortunately, legal disputes are probably inevitable. Legal Innovators, FTI Consulting, CPR, and Morril ADR have joined together to offer a webinar to walk through the legal issues and assessments of loss these businesses should consider in a no-fault environment and to describe a creative, cost-effective flat-fee mediation program to assist in moving forward in a post-COVID-19 world”, said Jonathan Greenblatt, Chairman and Co-Founder of Legal Innovators and Principal of J. Greenblatt International Disputes PLLC. 

“Mediation, conducted by skilled mediators, is a more efficient, creative and constructive process in arriving at cost-effective solutions than is litigation. We believe that our organization, together with our skilled mediators, Legal Innovators, and FTI can offer this pathway for many businesses to resolve their differences in a way that best gets them through this crisis”, said Allen Waxman, President and CEO of CPR. 

Business leaders may now register for the webinar on May 13th, which will provide: 

  • A checklist of legal issues to consider in evaluating rights and obligations 
  • An overview of the possible solutions 
  • Guidance to calculate loss 
  • Introduction of a creative and cost-effective mediation process enabling resolution of disputes to allow businesses to move forward
