Our Approach:

Our professional mediators and negotiators use psychology, game theory math, discourse analysis, law, and other sciences to help our clients create innovative, cost-effective solutions to their conflicts. We are a national firm and with the help of internet communication, can mobilize a team anywhere in the U.S.

We handle conflicts and relationships in animal rights, human rights, business, family, land, water, and other domains. Our clients are private individuals, partnerships, small businesses, corporations, organizations, and other stakeholders. Whether it be full-on mediation, conflict assessment, consultation and review, coaching, research, or related services, we employ thoughtful, reflective techniques to bring conflict partners to win-win, highly
positive outcomes.

BCS facilitates a productive negotiating dynamic to guide both sides toward the most sustainable, collaborative, and successful agreement. We also provide preventative services to create sustainable business, organizational, and interpersonal relationships that can withstand change and stress. All of our services are designed to keep you out of court, get you out of court, or protect important relationships. As a part of all our work, we assess the underlying psychological and mathematical dynamics of your conflict—which sometimes involves legal analysis—and provide you with an effective solution set, effective responses, and action steps that meet with your budget and save you money, time, and stress. This is almost always a better path than litigation.
