Working with DRI
Because of our commitment to resolution, DRI's involvement does not always end when the conference does. Even when a mediation does not result in settlement, the process always brings the parties closer together, opens lines of communication and provides additional information not previously disclosed and evaluated. While 85% of all mediations will generally produce an immediate settlement, DRI provides the follow-up needed to settle those cases that do not resolve initially. DRI continues the quest for resolution by addressing remaining issues with the parties and assists in formulating approaches to help resolve them. A followup can range from simple information clarification, further negotiation facilitated by the mediator or bringing about agreement for a binding hearing, often with a "high/low" provision.
