Audience questions and participation will be encouraged. "

March 29, 2013 - Seattle, WA

Topic: "Timing is Everything (Especially in Mediation)" 

"This presentation will explore various aspects of timing in mediation, with a particular focus on timing relative to negotiation and litigation strategy. For instance, should mediation occur before or after a ruling on summary judgment? When should the “smoking gun” be produced? How much time should be devoted to the mediation effort? Using actual and hypothetical case scenarios, the presenters will involve the audience in a discussion about timing from the perspective of the mediator, counsel and parties involved in mediation of their dispute. "
