Effective Representation in Mediation
In this presentation for the Entertainment Arts & Sports Law Section and the New York State Bar Association, Simeon H. Baum focused on making the most out of the opportunities available in mediation. Mr. Baum espoused his belief that understanding the nature and potential of the mediation process helps you know how to make the most out of this opportunity. Mediation is "negotiation plus", or a facilitated negotiation that offers a skilled neutral who can help with process design, quality of communication, information exchange, management of inter-party dynamics and expectations, assist in thinking about negotiation moves, facilitate and provide risk and transaction cost assessment, analysis of other deal alternatives, and help foster the atmosphere for relationship repair, creative brainstorming and dialogue.
