Preparing for and attending a mediation
Mediation provides the best opportunity for a quick resolution of what may otherwise become a time-consuming and expensive dispute.
During this session, solicitor and mediator Peter Causton of ProMediate will discuss when is the best time to mediate and the factors to consider when selecting a mediator.
Guidance will also be offered in respect of how best to prepare for a mediation; as a solicitor part of your role is to understand what your client really wants from the mediation and to prepare them for the fact that compromise is an inherent element of the mediation process.
Peter will consider the benefits of opening meetings and what you can do if this not an option. Peter will also suggest tactics that can be employed once the mediation is underway.
In addition, viewers will receive practical hints and tips on how to avoid common stumbling blocks such as a party needing to pay the settlement in instalments or a confidentiality requirement being introduced late on in the negotiations.
