For his tenth book, James C. Freund has crossed over from a lifetime of negotiating M&A and other business deals to tackle the equally demanding task a mediator confronts in resolving disputes.Jim has been honing his mediator’s craft over the past two decades, with particular emphasis on the toughest of all cases to settle – the classic zero sum game of a sizeable one-shot dollar dispute over hotly contested issues between sophisticated, well-represented parties. Freund’s problem-solving approach – rooted in his transactional experience and deal-making mentality – is distinctive and has proved its effectiveness on a regular basis.
In Anatomy of a Mediation, Jim describes his technique in detail and takes the reader step-by-step through its application in resolving four expansive hypothetical situations, each focusing on a different type of dispute – such as a case involving multiple parties and another with significant deal elements and forward-looking considerations.
