Mediation Advocacy: Effective Client Representation in Mediation Proceedings
Available in the Osgoode Hall Law School Library
As the financial, time, and personal costs of litigation continue to increase, well-informed clients seek new forums for resolving their disputes. Alternate dispute resolution (ADR) has become a hot topic in legal circles and among clients, but requests for such processes can provoke anxiety in counsel who are conscious of a "gap" in practice experience where out-of-court dispute resolution is concerned.
This guide is designed for both litigation specialists and business lawyers/solicitors seeking a better understanding of ADR and of the lawyer's role in these processes. The authors provide a concise and practical examination of the progress of an ADR case from the lawyer's point of view. Issues covered include the decision to seek an ADR process, the selection of an arbitrator, mediator or other neutral, negotiation strategy, settlements and enforcement, the lawyer's professional responsibilities in the context of ADR, and the integration of ADR and litigation practice. Also included are several useful checklists and precedents. Mediation Advocacy is the essential resource for lawyers committed to responding to the needs of their most valued clients.
