ADR Systems


Hon. Kay M. Hanlon, (Ret.), senior mediator and arbitrator at ADR Systems, and Michael Koss, ADR Systems’ Business Development & Marketing Assistant Manager, recently published an article in the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois blog and Spring newsletter titled Are You Prepared for Remote Dispute Resolution?, which reviews how attorneys can properly prepare for a remote mediations or arbitrations.

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic threw many attorneys into unchartered waters. The courts stalled. Homes became offices. And practice went virtual. Remote dispute resolution has helped attorneys move their cases along despite the circumstances; and while there is no difference between remote and in-person mediation or arbitration, more technical preparation is required to make the most out of remote proceedings.

To help attorneys put forth their best showing during a remote session, this article cites key ethical rules that relate to remote dispute resolution and provides technical advice and practical recommendations for attorneys about to enter remote proceedings.

ADR Systems, It’s Settled. ®

"Judge Hanlon was an amazing mediator! While I have known her for years, I have never appeared in front of her or mediated a case with her. During a 10-hour mediation with her, I marveled at how hard she worked to get this case settled, and, more importantly, how great she communicated with my clients. She was calm, measured, reassuring, and so incredibly knowledgeable on the facts and mediation tactics. Judge Hanlon will always be on the top of my list for future mediations."
