We believe mediation is one of the most powerful and effective dispute resolution tools. With the aid of a mediator, the parties in dispute work together, and sometimes separately, to craft a resolution that is sustainable, voluntary, nonbinding, and confidential. For the second day of Mediation Week 2020, we are offering a range of resources about using ADR, specifically mediation for in-house attorneys and GCs. “ADR for Corporate Counsel” is led by international mediator and arbitrator Nigel Wright. His in-house and GC office experience, and background, provides corporations with the option to retain a mediator who understands the case from their perspective and who has been in their position.
