Counsel Comments

    • “To me, the mediation process was extremely useful. In reality, there were some old quarrels among the parties that made it impossible to have a serious conversation about the proposal on the table. [Mr. Navarro’s] intervention helped us to overcome those problems, find a way out of them and focus on the negotiation.”
