Develop a Plan for Movement
“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.”
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
Why is it that bright trial lawyers who plan and prepare extensively for trial so often fail to plan for mediation? Often, trial planning is a result of long years of training and experience while there is often little training for how to prepare or conduct mediation or settlement conferences.
Setting out a plan for movement will assist in both planning and execution of the mediation strategy. There is no single best method for negotiation and the best strategy is tailored to the situation / opponent. Planning your offers and a calculated disclosure of information can motivate the opposition to move and settle.
