Mediation Approach & Philosophy

The cost and time that must be expended to resolve a dispute often makes litigation financially impractical. If you or your company is involved in a dispute with another party and it would be beneficial to have that dispute resolved confidentially, quickly, inexpensively and impartially, then alternative dispute resolution is the answer. Its the same answer used by most of the 1,000 largest United States corporations. I approach each mediation with a fresh eye and individualized plan. I try to be flexible in my approach and provide the parties with the mediation process they need.

Uses for Mediation You Probably Never Considered

 


Conflict Prevention. Mediators don’t always help parties end relationships; sometimes they help parties form them. Mediators can also assist parties in modifying agreements that govern these relationships. 

 


Case Assessment. Parties to a dispute are sometimes unsure whether or their dispute ready or appropriate for Mediation. A session with a mediator could enable the parties to: (1) understand the benefits of mediation; (2) determine whether the dispute is appropriate for mediation; (3) assess whether the dispute is ripe; and (4) locate an appropriate mediator. 

 


Convening. A mediator can be retained to discuss the advantages that mediation would offer in the instant dispute and to persuade the recalcitrant party to at least try mediation for a session. 

 


Managing Information Gathering. Parties to a lawsuit can employ a mediator to: (1) help develop a document production process; (2) create discovery schedules; (3) resolves disputes over document production and interrogatory submission; (4) resolve disputes arising during depositions; (5) help the parties interpret vague court orders; and (6) productively use court mandated settlement conferences. 

Expert Coordination. A mediator can assist the parties to resolve issues arising out of the use of experts
