The benefits of a successful early mediation are obvious: disputes can be resolved in a private, expeditious and economical fashion. It gives you the chance to resolve the case early, saving your client or business money in defense costs. Plus, the result of a happy client is a returning client, and a client that gives a referral. 

This webcast will explore the benefits of successful early mediation, and the means by which parties can jointly take a leap of faith and work towards an effective pre-suit or pre-discovery resolution of their dispute.

  • The importance of early mediation
  • Best practices in selecting a mediator
  • Business vs. litigious approaches to dispute resolution

  • Who should attend the mediation
