Let’s Play Ball: Mediation Advocacy and Effective Techniques

Let’s Play Ball: Mediation Advocacy and Effective Techniques
Presented By: JAMS and the Sports Lawyers Association

Event Effective Settlement Negotiation Strategies

The benefits of mediation are well established within the legal profession, yet at times underutilized within the sports industry. As sports law continues to develop and steal headlines, mediation will become more inherent to the litigation process.

Join our experienced panel as they explore current issues facing the sports industry and how to maximize results for clients through effective use of mediation.

Topics will include how to prepare a case for mediation, advanced strategies for maximizing the mediation session, effective negotiation, using the mediator to your best advantage, and how to overcome an impasse.
