B12 – Why Should I Settle at Appellate Mediation? – Michael S. Orfinger (2.1 CME Credits Appellate)
$15.00 – $18.00
A fair question, to be sure. The existence of a trial court ruling, coupled with a pending appeal, adds layers of complexity to a facilitated negotiation. This workshop will focus primarily on the multi-level risk analysis that both appellants and appellees must undertake in order to make informed decisions about settlement of a case on appeal. This will entail a discussion of the various things the mediator must do to prepare for appellate mediation, as well as some techniques the mediator may find helpful in guiding the parties and their counsel through a risk analysis.
