Taken from the briefing Ten Mistakes to Avoid at Mediation – Improving the Odds for a Resolution recorded May, 2017 in New York.

Under the best of circumstances, mediation may not result in the resolution of a litigated dispute. This may be as a result of factors which are not under the control of the parties. However, mediators are often negatively affected by basic mistakes involving factors that are within the parties control. Listen to the Honorable John P. DiBlasi (Ret.) of NAM as he explores how to avoid making mistakes and thus maximize success for the mediation.

Lecture Topics  [01:02:34]

Topics to be addressed include:
