WEBINAR - Assessing Court Risks: What mediators need to know

For mediators, advocates and counsel in mediations

About the webinar:

Mediators need to understand the risks involved with going to court to be able to help parties negotiate and reality test their position. This webinar guides you through step by step to help you to understand and assess court risks. It answers the question of what if the mediation fails? What then?
