Mediation and Settlement - Real World Strategies 2013 (Audio-only)

Released on: Mar. 14, 2013
Running Time: 01:10:21

Taken from the briefing Mediation and Settlement - Real World Strategies recorded February, 2013.

Mediation is an alternative to litigation increasingly demanded by both judges and clients.  Lawyers who are experts in taking depositions or trying cases often find themselves in unfamiliar territory in a mediation or settlement negotiation, where the required skill set is a combination of advocacy, psychology, and poker. 

Lecture Topics  [Total Time: 01:10:21]

  • Timing of mediation (outset of case, before or after discovery and/or dispositive motions, eve of trial)
  • Preparation for mediation
  • Considerations that should affect opening offers or counteroffers
  • Why some mediations succeed and others fail and the lessons learned from the failures
  • The most common mistakes made by attorneys in mediation (including misreading the mediator and miscalculating the adversary’s bottom line)
  • End-game strategies
