The expense and delays associated with the trial of civil matters often make litigation an impractical method for resolving disputes. Particularly when the matter at issue inolves real estate, it is useful for parties to find the shortest route to resolution. In addition to the time and money saved, the choice to address real estate related disputes via the mediation process allows for creative solutions, preservation of the relationship between adversaries, and is less impactful on the ongoing business at hand.

This program will not only provide substantive mediation tips and best practices useful for the new mediator, but will also delve into more complex real estate specific topics -- in the context of the mediation process.

Specific attention will be given to Construction Disputes, Boundary Disputes, Easements, Zoning and Planning Disputes, Environmental Regulations, Commercial Lease Disputes, Condominium Association Disputes, Probate and Trust matters, and Family Owned Property Disputes.
