In today’s pressure-cooker litigation environment, mediation has become an ADR option for an increasing number of judges who order it, and litigators and parties who voluntarily select it. Yet, too many litigators fail to understand that effective mediation advocacy is not the same as zealous litigation advocacy.

In this practical recorded webinar, an experienced mediator and expert trial lawyer provide10 best practice tips to help attorneys and mediators maximize the mediation process. Tips covered include:


1. Matching the right mediator to each individual dispute

2. Designing a mediation process tailored to the dynamics and personalities involved

3. Enlisting the mediator’s assistance in understanding how interests and perspectives can lead to better solutions

4. Replacing traditional positional bargaining with interest-based bargaining

5. Educating and preparing clients to participate more effectively in the process

6. Communicating your most cogent points directly to the decision maker on the other side

7. Developing commercial, construction, employment, labor. an offer/concession strategy that keeps you one step ahead of opposing counsel


You’ll leave this program with ten key mediation strategies to help you maximize the mediation process.
