Words of "Wisdom" from Greg
Success as a mediator - resolving disputes - is different than success as a trial lawyer. Those who have mediated with me know they will hear stories. But the stories have a purpose and lead to a chance to listen and listening facilitates settlement. Even in commercial cases where one would expect rationality to prevail, emotion can control. Parties who are heard are more likely to settle. More important than my trial victories is what I learned from my losses and how that might bring about resolution.
Claims are resolved when the parties have been prepared well for the mediation and the mediator echoes what parties have been told by their attorney. It is more important that everyone examines the weaker part of the case rather than hammering continuously on strengths.
