This discussion will focus on conducting an effective mediation with an emphasis on how careful strategy planning, detailed preparation and strong presentation skills can greatly enhance your chance to resolve claims at the right numbers at mediation. The panelists will use “real life” examples of strategic planning, attention to detail, diligent file investigation and overall preparation to ignite discussion among the attendees regarding the best ways to reach mediated settlement agreements that make sense.
They will also discuss how information is power at mediation, why it makes sense for defense counsel, insured and claims handler to jointly develop a number of potential routes to settlement before walking in the door, and the use of effective presentation techniques to encourage debate among attendees as to how strong advocacy skills can help reach excellent results at mediation.
