HELPING DISPUTING PARTIES MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT




JOHN LANDE

 

The dispute resolution field seeks to help parties solve problems, often when they seem to lack good (or sometimes any) practical dispute resolution options.  For example, in a family law matter, dispute resolvers can help parties choose a process (e.g., negotiation, mediation, collaborative law, arbitration, or litigation); design the process (by making procedural agreements about how to handle the case); and make decisions in a case  about specific issues such as property division and parenting arrangements. Dispute resolvers’ assistance in making these three types of decisions is relevant in virtually all disputes.  Indeed, it is all the more important in complex civil cases such as commercial, personal injury, and intellectual property cases.

 

This program will discuss how dispute and conflict resolution professionals can help parties make all three of these types of decisions.  It will particularly focus on helping parties identify, value and pursue their intangible interests in disputes and conflicts — and in resolving those disputes and conflicts. John Lande will draw on the concepts and suggestions in his new co-authored book, Litigation Interest and Risk Assessment: Help Your Clients Make Good Litigation Decisions.
