Complex Mediation

Complex Litigation Mediator

Litigation is a process, not a product. It involves strategic thinking, calculated implementation, and effective written and oral advocacy.  Mediation is no different.   Like litigation, successful negotiations require effective planning and preparation. A skilled mediator can help the parties communicate more effectively so that they might find a win-win solution.
