About the Event
Mediation can be an effective way to resolve construction disputes. Increasingly, however, parties treat the mediation session itself as the first opportunity to meaningfully address the key disputed issues, often resulting in an impasse, followed by arbitration or litigation. Based upon a survey of hundreds of construction law practitioners, this presentation will offer concrete recommendations regarding mediator preferences, mediation timing, pre-mediation preparation and communication, mediation structure, and post-mediation communication.
