Tips for Mediation of the Toughest Construction Disputes
Maintain a poker face and get better results at mediation.
When faced with a difficult construction dispute, getting a settlement at mediation can signify an end to sleepless nights for your client. Resolution at mediation evades the uncertain risks and excessive costs of seeing a dispute through to the end. However, mediation might be as daunting as seeing it through to the end. Each side plays a game of poker with the chances of winning and losing, unpredictability abounds, and the mediator has no power to determine the fate of the parties. This white paper reviews ways to strengthen negotiations and offers tips to get a mediation out of a difficult spot.
