Mediation How-To for Trial Lawyers?

Question by MIke Paget: Mediation How-To for Trial Lawyers?
The June issue of Trial, a publication of the American Association for Justice, contains a helpful “How-To” article for trial lawyers on the mediation of commercial disputes. Stewart I. Edelstein wrote the lengthy “Hot-To” article, which discusses such topics as choosing the right mediator, preparing to mediate, selecting which strategies to utilize, getting past impasse and finalizing the mediation. The tips are summarized quickly for you below.

Choosing a Mediator Mr. Edelstein writes that you should chose a mediator ?”who is impartial and has a strong track record for effective problem-solving, excellent negotiating skills, patience, trustworthiness, a keen business sense, and a good sense of humor.” However, sometimes a general mediator won’t get the job done. You may need to choose a mediator who focuses on a particular area, such as construction or patents.
