Mediation is certainly not a one-size fits all solution. In a recent article published by the ADR Times, Bruce Friedman discusses the three main styles of mediation and how each relates to the commercial case resolution process. Here’s an excerpt:
“In my experience, in the mediation of commercial cases, the parties and their counsel want an evaluative mediation approach. I have found that even if a mediation is unsuccessful, the parties and counsel seem satisfied if they have received an honest appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses of their case.”
Bruce proceeds to break down the various styles of mediation and explain why, in his experience, certain types of cases respond better to certain approaches. Also considered is the needs and reactions of the parties, a crucial part of the alternative dispute resolution process.
