Mediation Settlement Events
FINRA Dispute Resolution invites you to join us in celebrating the benefits of mediation during our annual Mediation Settlement Month. Take advantage of our significantly reduced mediation prices by agreeing to meditate during the month of October 2013. Parties have until December 31, 2013 to conduct the mediation. Please review our Mediation Settlement Month page for more details. Our aim is to encourage more parties to experience the benefits of mediation for the first time and to reinforce its value and effectiveness to those who have benefited from mediation before. Print out our Mediation Settlement Month flyer with details about the annual event for your own use or to share with a client.
