You Might be a Mediator…

“So why even have the mediation? If I can get all that information, I can probably tell the parties what they need to hear in the first hour.”

If you agree with that, then you might NOT be a mediator.

Ask either of these questions:

  • Who prepares the pre-mediation statement?
  • To whom does the mediation belong?

Ask yourself:

  • Why are interrogatories so often less effective in discovery than depositions?
  • Who prepares the Answers to interrogatories?
  • Does the mediation always “track” the pre-mediation statements?
  • Audience?

How might mediation make a difference?
