Mediation, in Particular Early Mediation Works

Early mediation is very effective when you plan for success. Success in mediation is all about solving a problem, where success at trial is winning the war.

Solving a problem, requires far less information and is typically obtained in less time than turning every stone in preparation for trial.

Planning for success is straightforward. Both sides share their claims and counter claims along with their supporting evidence. Then the parties work towards targeted discovery limited to just the information necessary to make a decision.

Successful planning results in a dispute that is resolved, quickly.

Sherman Knight

Sherman Knight was recommended as a mediator by opposing counsel in a difficult construction and commercial lease dispute. I called a number of colleagues and those that had worked with him all gave him their endorsement. I did not expect the case to settle, trial was in less than 30 days, both sides were firmly rooted in their positions and there had been no meaningful settlement discussion. Mr. Knight worked with the parties until 10:30 on a Friday night, resolving the dispute with a creative solution that made my clients very happy. I would highly recommend Mr. Knight to anyone contemplating using him as a mediator.
