Strategizing and Preparing for Mediation

As more and more courts are encouraging or requiring Alternative Dispute Resolution, attorneys are familiarizing themselves with how to best prepare, both themselves and their clients, for mediation. Louis Kushner  has mediated hundreds of cases in a variety of areas, including employment mediation, commercial mediation, real estate mediation, shareholder or partnership mediation, and trade secrets mediation.
