Webinar | ACC-SD & Procopio Present: Successful Alternative Dispute Resolution for Your Company - Part 1: Mediation

Mediation has become an extremely popular method of settling legal disputes. Join us for part one of a two-part alternate dispute resolution webinar series where our highly experienced panel (who has seen it all!) will break it down and consider the who, what, when, and where of mediation from all angles, including the role of corporate counsel. How should you as corporate counsel prepare to go into a mediation most effectively to get the most out of the mediation? Our program will give you insights from multiple veteran perspectives. During this informative and engaging webinar, we will: 

  • Discuss the upsides of having a mediation clause in your contracts and what it should say
  • Consider the benefits of pre-dispute mediation and the challenges of mediation during various stages of arbitration and litigation
  • Examine service provider options and the choice of the use of retired judges or lawyers serving as mediators, and compare online vs. live mediation
  • Discuss the roles of the parties, in house and outside counsel, mediator, and insurance carrier representatives during the mediation and techniques for breaking through impasse
