Webinar: Five Keys to Mediating with Power

Please share:

April 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

This program offers 1 participatory MCLE credit.

Mediation is more art than science. Itā€™s a powerful opportunity to explore settlement possibilities. At mediation all of the decision makers and attorneys are present in the same place, at the same time, with no distractions. The sole focus of the mediation is the matter at hand. Some cases are ready to be settled with very little effort. For others the results hang in the balance.

Come hear a seasoned mediator describe how the actions and choices of counsel (and the mediator) both before and during the mediation often make all the difference on whether or not a case settles.
