The coronavirus pandemic has greatly affected the way and manner, in which disputes are being deliberated. Mediation, a popular alternative dispute resolution process, has largely transitioned from an in-person office setting to remote Zoom videoconferences and teleconferences to ensure that recommended social distancing guidelines are being followed. Remote mediations, if properly understood, can provide an effective mechanism for potentially resolving your clients’ claims and disputes. As such, it is important for legal professionals to learn what is involved in these remote mediation processes, understand how they can be effectively utilized, and know what must be done to prepare in advance of mediation. This 60-minute webinar will introduce these remote mediation processes and include a discussion of what the legal professional should do to ensure that clients, attorneys, and mediators are prepared for a successful remote mediation.
