CBL is proud to announce that its own Conna A. Weiner, co-chair of its Intellectual Property Litigation Subcommittee and former co-chair of its ADR Subcommittee, has co-authored a new edition of an ABA publication titled Commercial Mediation Practice Guide: A Practical Handbook for Lawyers and their Business Clients (American Bar Association, Dispute Resolution Section). The handbook was co-authored with Bennet G. Picker, former partner and now senior counsel at Stradley Ronen Stevens & Young.
The handbook provides a comprehensive study, current thinking and recommendations on suitability, psychological preparation and advocacy of commercial mediation issues. The handbook, which is in its third edition and substantially updates and refocuses previous versions, has been called by one reviewer as “simply the best resource available and a must-have for all commercial litigators.” It is aimed not only at lawyers and mediators but also business clients participating in commercial mediations. The handbook includes case studies and sections specifically addressing best practices in connection with virtual, deal, IP, insurance, class action and multi-party mediations, as well as best practices for mediations occurring before a litigation or arbitration is filed.
