For the last three years, your team has been working feverishly on an epic bet-the-company complex litigation matter. The lawyers are exhausted. The business leaders have grown impatient. The judge has had enough. Finally, after an action-packed period of fact depositions and just prior to the exchange of expert reports, there appears to be a beam of light streaming from the litigation sky. Both parties have agreed to a mediation that will be attended by business leaders who have the authority to settle the case.
Lawyers and their clients swoop into town from all over the country. Each team spends the night prior to the mediation bonding over the mutual disdain of the other side’s lead counsel.
