Overview

For his tenth book, Jim 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. Freund 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 dealmaking mentality—is distinctive and has proved quite effective.

In Anatomy of a Mediation, Freund describes his evaluative 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.
