Compared to other countries in South America, Brazil is quite advanced when it comes to mediation and the legislation by which it is governed. The consensual resolution of conflicts without going through litigation, as in other countries, is generally preferable in Brazil. As a rule, it is more economical and more timely than other resolution options conducted by the courts. This alternative dispute resolution service provided by Di Blasi, Parente & Associados is led by founding partner Paulo Parente Marques Méndez, a certified mediator in Brazil, he is also a member of the INTA Mediator Network, in addition to being a frequent author and speaker on the subject.
Like mediation, arbitration in Brazil is another alternative method of dispute resolution, often with faster, more economically attractive and less bureaucratic results than seeking a judicial solution. Arbitration can be attractive when the parties cannot reach resolution through mediation.
