What will be discussed in a pre-mediation conference call? - ADR Systems

ADR Systems


During a pre-mediation conference call, the following will likely be discussed: the nature of the dispute and the status of any pending litigation; the names of those who will be attending the mediation on both sides; whether a joint opening session would be productive; and the content of the pre-mediation submissions and whether they will be exchanged.

Judge Burke mediated a settlement in a matter where the parties were extremely far apart, with almost no common ground.  He pushed both sides to rethink their positions, outlined a post-conference approach and made himself available on short notice.  I do not believe anyone else could have settled the matter.  He will be my first choice for future mediations.
