Online Mediation & Investigation Services

Alexis is comfortable conducting mediations and investigations in-person and online using Zoom. The COVID pandemic has proven that online mediations and investigations are viable – and sometimes preferable.

Online mediation generally begins with all advocates and parties in one virtual room for introductions and an overview of the day. The parties and their counsel are then sent to separate virtual breakout rooms for private caucuses with Alexis.

Online investigations are similar to in-person investigations and are conducted via a platform that allows document sharing, whiteboarding, transcription, and other services valuable to the investigative process.

Advantages of online mediation or investigation:

  • Parties attend from a comfortable, familiar location and avoid stress responses that can be triggered when physically close to an opposing party
  • Discrete attendance
  • No travel time or expense for parties, counsel, or neutral
  • Streamlined process
  • Increased accessibility
  • Increased productivity for counsel and parties during natural breaks in the process
