Attorneys and mediators alike will benefit from a review of the mediation process from the perspective of an experienced lawyer who has served as counsel for homeowners’ associations and as a frequent mediator in community association disputes. Gary Rosner will discuss:

– Importance of pre-mediation communications and preparation of participation for mediation.
– Question of authority and attendance at mediation when a board is participating
– Establishment of rapport with the parties and creating comfort with the process
– MEAC opinions on ethics, self-determination, and authority
– Understanding of the “prevailing party” and responsibility for legal fees. “Kick in the Stomach” issue
– Importance of BOD knowing insurance coverage, i.e., policies that only provide for the cost of defense, not indemnity; and when counsel is appointed by the insurer, the importance of communication between insurance appointed counsel and privately retained counsel to association/board if occurring before mediation. Especially coverage issues, the ability of BOD to pay a settlement, the default rate on units, etc.
