90 Minutes     

While mediation provides a powerful tool for the resolution of multi-party disputes, the added complexity of facts, legal issues and potentially competing interests of the various parties require that advocates and mediators utilize different techniques to achieve success. This moderated discussion will explore ways to tailor the process to the needs of the multiple parties, select an effective mediator, manage competing interests, and incorporate demands of the parties that might not have emerged in the original deal or transaction.

During this 90-minute recorded webinar, the expert panel shares practical advice on how you can prepare for complex, multi-party mediations and optimize the effectiveness of the process. Areas covered include:

  • mediator selection
  • the mediation process (consensus building, stakeholder representation, experts, pre-mediation statements and calls, etc.)
  • tailoring the process (driving interests, intangible considerations, business concerns, etc.)
  • case studies
  • wrapping-up the mediation

Multi-party disputes bring an entirely different dimension to the mediation process and require enhanced expertise and preparation. This presentation should not be missed.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Mediators, litigators, in-house and settlement counsel, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of resolution of complex disputes.

What others are saying about this presentation...

"Very helpful tips for one embarking on a mediation career."

"These mediators share practical and timely tips on the challenges and management of mediations, not just multi-party ones.  I would listen again because the tips are that good."
