Attorneys can be in a better position to monitor the negotiating behavior of their counterparties and to advance the needs of their clients if they become more conflict resolution literate and mediation savvy.

Develop a more in-depth understanding of what the role of the mediator is, preparing for mediation, mediation strategies, and what goes on in a commercial mediation to help you and your clients get the most value from the process.

There’s a lot to absorb, including:

• Principles of interest-based negotiation.

• Selecting the appropriate mediator.

• Pre-mediation client counseling: BATNAs, RPs, BAGs, priority setting, risk assessment, present-value determination, and negotiation strategy.

• Working with the mediator.

• Framing an advantageous opening statement in mediation.

• When to collaborate and when to compete.

Join us to discover more about what goes on in the mediation room where it happens!
