    This book combines theory with intensely practical techniques that the reader can use to resolve difficult legal disputes. It provides dozens of examples, drawn from the author's extensive experience, that bring tactical suggestions to life.

    This book will teach you how to:

    • Mediate effectively between hostile lawyers and parties
    • Deal with hard bargaining tactics such as "insulting" offers and reneging
    • Predict litigation outcomes without alienating disputants
    • Use impasse-breaking techniques such as confidential listener, range bargaining, and the mediator's proposal to achieve settlements
    • As a litigator, take advantage of a mediator's special powers to achieve better outcomes for clients
    BONUS: This book includes a unique DVD that demonstrates its techniques. You will see experienced mediators conduct an opening session, elicit offers, deliver an evaluation, apply impasse tactics and use other essential skills.
