In this episode, we explore how focus group clips can be used as tools in mediation. Specifically, I’m sharing five simple things that we can do as plaintiff’s lawyers to help our mediation, which I learned from a respected mediator on both sides of the aisle.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Virtual mediation v. in-person mediation
  • Ways to prepare your client for the mediation
  • Sending a demand before the mediation
  • Negotiation styles (ex. positional bargaining and principled negotiation)
  • The ranges of risk on a case
  • How to use focus group clips for mediation
