Is Contractually-Required Mediation of a Business Dispute Before Litigation a Waste of Time?

Monday, February 4, 2019 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Many attorneys are concerned that mediating a dispute before a litigation is filed does not lay the groundwork for  successful settlement negotiations because it is “too early,” particularly if the mediation is a required condition precedent to arbitration or litigation in a multi-step dispute resolution clause. In a business and commercial context, however, there are many advantages to early mediation if done with the right attitude, participants and preparation with the mediator. This panel will briefly outline the costs and benefits, common concerns, and best practices in connection with mediating a business dispute before a litigation is filed and then invite attendees to share their experiences with the panel and each other.
