Superlative mediation advocacy can be learned. Smart attorneys who want to up-their-game at mediation will want to learn what practice habits and strategies are effective and avoid the common missteps that lead to impasse. Getting the results you want depends in some measure on the activity and preparation leading to mediation. After disclosure of tips and strategies, both attorneys and mediators will have a better understanding of optimal practice habits and how parties and their counsel can avoid impasse. With a discussion of both practical steps and ethical considerations that govern behavior, good advocacy is achieved. You can achieve successful resolution for the client and be better positioned to make mediation work in the hard case.
