Settlement Consultants and Mediation

Settlement Consultants and Mediation

Learning that you plan to bring a settlement consultant to an upcoming mediation meeting may initially overwhelm a client. Some may view involving a settlement planner in the mediation phase as unnecessary, because it may appear that you are looking to settle quickly—or for less. While you may not know if the mediation meeting will end in a settlement offer, involving a settlement consultant in the mediation process can have many benefits.

At Milestone Consulting, we’ll be with you and your client from mediation all the way through the end of the settlement planning phase. Your Milestone Consulting settlement planner will prove invaluable once a settlement has been reached, but they can also provide expert financial advice in regard to initial settlement offers. This may seem obvious, considering that our consultants are well-versed in finance and in investing your client’s hard-won settlement earnings. But involving such an expert early on can go a long way toward establishing a deeper trust between counsel and client, which should translate to the plaintiff heeding your advice on settling and speeding along the whole process toward its conclusion.

When you involve one of Milestone Consulting’s settlement consultants, even as early as mediation, you can rest assured that you’ll have another advocate for your client—one who has their interests and the interests of their family members and loved ones in mind. Whether it’s a structured settlement or a trust, we can help you formulate an appropriate plan that prioritizes your client’s current and future needs. It’s never too soon to involve a settlement planner.
