Legal Services Before and During Mediation

If you have scheduled mediation with another mediator, make sure it will be productive by being prepared ahead of time with a full understanding of the relevant law and realistic and viable options for settling the issues to be resolved.  Maximize the chances of reaching a successful mediated agreement with the benefit of legal advice or representation prior and/or during mediation.   For  example, if there are businesses involved or executive or officer compensation including, for instance, stock options or incentives, it’s best for the mediator to be an accounting professional.
