1. compromise with someone to help reach a settlement
meet someone halfway to seal a deal/resolve a conflict
When you agree to 'meet someone halfway' you agree to compromise or to negotiate in order to come to an agreement or to reach a deal. This expression can be used even if the compromise isn't literally 'halfway' and also in social transactions as well as professional ones. "Ok, I'll meet you halfway, if you can make dinner, I'll get the groceries on the way home."
