Litigation can have a devastating impact on a company, negatively affecting its bottom line by consuming both time and resources. In many cases, parties involved in a dispute do not contemplate alternate dispute resolution options until it is too late.

Whether mandatory or voluntary, mediation is a productive alternative that can lead to an efficient and cost-effective resolution. Clogged dockets and lengthy, often contentious, discovery processes make the mediation process even more appealing.

Panelists will address potential ethical issues that may arise during mediation, such as whether, and to what extent, information known to a party at the time of mediation can or should be disclosed. In addition, they will provide helpful strategies for getting the most out of mediation.
