An Unspoken Benefit of Mediation: Protecting Your Professional Reputation in a Divorce

Updated: Dec 31, 2020



Fortunes are made and lost in discovery.

Made by lawyers. Lost by the litigants.

What is “Discovery”?

Discovery is the formal process by which the parties to litigation obtain information with the ultimate goal of trying their case.

Some discovery tools involve the questioning of your employer, employees, colleagues, or business relations. This aspect can be incredibly stressful and humiliating. And engaging in voluntary mediation can help you avoid it.

Remember – discovery is how information is exchanged in a litigated case. But if you try mediate before trying to litigate, it’s possible to come up with an agreement for an exchange of certain documents and financials.

This can help you avoid:

  • Attorney fees and costs wasted complying with formal discovery

  • The stress and loss of control associated with an extensive discovery process

  • Involvement of employer, employees, colleagues, or business relations. This aspect can be incredibly stressful and humiliating. And mediation can help you avoid it.

  • Damage to your professional reputation, resulting from the use of depositions, subpoenas and other discovery methods.
