JAMS neutral, Conna A. Weiner, Esq., FCIArb, recently co-authored “Commercial Mediation Practice Guide: A Practical Handbook for Lawyers and their Business Clients” (American Bar Association, Dispute Resolution Section) with Bennet G. Picker, former partner and now senior counsel at Stradley Ronen Stevens & Young. The handbook provides a comprehensive, invaluable understanding of current thinking and recommendations on critical suitability, psychological, preparation and advocacy commercial mediation issues and is aimed at not only lawyers and mediators but also business clients participating in commercial mediations. This third edition substantially updates and refocuses previous versions and has been called “simply the best resource available and a must-have for all commercial litigators” by one reviewer. Drawing from Ms. Weiner’s extensive ADR experience, it includes case studies and sections specifically addressing best practices in connection with virtual, deal, IP, insurance, class action and multi-party mediation as well as mediations occurring before a litigation or arbitration is filed.
