Sander provides other dispute resolution and risk management services, working with the parties and their counsel, both to design appropriate hybrid methods for the resolution of their particular dispute and as a mediator-facilitator (known as "deal mediation") to help them overcome deal negotiation hurdles so that they conclude new agreements and potentially establish new business relationships.
