We must be vigilant to keep the mediation process moving in the right direction and not become “just another thing to get through.” The beauty of mediation is that you have the ability to structure it to your client’s best advantage.
Finally a word to those of us who mediate: “Mediator fatigue” can be deadly, especially in recurring cases where insurance is involved. There is a tendency to take the “cookie cutter” approach. Get it in, go through the motions and expect the parties to achieve the classic “settlement that no one is happy about.” The best mediators understand this “dark side” and avoid it.
