Uncomplicate the complex high profile mediation by preparing, persevering, preparing, having patience, and preparing.
When encountering rough spots or impasse, a good and persistent mediator can try several things to help the parties reflect before giving up.
In sexual abuse cases, a survivor’s decision to file a civil action against the abuser can often be an empowering experience and an important step in the healing process. A civil suit, however, also can be very stressful on the survivor, who must weigh the risk of exposing his or her private life to the abuser, the court, and in some instances the media. Mediation can be an effective compromise.
The FAA’s grounds for vacatur make it almost impossible to unbind erroneous arbitration awards. Creative arguments and early planning may, however, provide a narrow escape.
Take advantage of the creativity arbitration allows by presenting evidence efficiently and effectively in a VASE: Visuals, Affidavits, Summaries, and Exhibits.
Particularly in arbitration, where there is little right of appeal, a lawyer’s skills in the neutral selection process may impact the outcome as much as any other advocacy skill.
The superiority requirement of FRCP Rule 23 (b)(3) can be the sole basis for denying class certification.
Understand how jurors listen, develop persuasive themes, and present your case as a narrative.
Witness attempts to cover up or deny claims handling errors may prove costly to the defense. Instead, strategize for admitting an underlying mistake, offering amends, and stressing lessons learned.
