CAMP-IDEX Mediation Advocacy Fireside Chat Series: Season 1

CAMP in association with IDEX is going to organize the Mediation Advocacy Fireside Chat Series: Season 1

Episode 1:
Pitching Mediation to Clients: The First Step to Successful Collaboration

Recommending mediation to resolve a dispute is the first big challenge a lawyer faces when guiding a client down a collaborative path. Emotions are at an all time high, with the client wanting 'justice' and 'retribution'. When is the right time to mediate? How do you strategise? What are the words you use? Who could you call for assistance? Finally, why should you even consider it?

Date: Thursday, 12th August, 2021
Time: 06.30 PM (IST)
Platform: Zoom

Episode 2:
Prepping for Mediation: Beyond Research and Strategy

Lawyers preparing for a mediation session require a fundamentally different strategy as compared to their buildup to an adversarial hearing. This pre-mediation activity goes beyond research and drafting. It calls for mental and emotional preparation to deal with the ebb and flow of a facilitated negotiation. What are the key elements of good planning? What are the risks you run if you take it for granted?

Episode 3:
Navigating Deadlocks: Constructive Engagement with Counterparts

Clients lean on lawyers especially during the most tense moments in the dispute resolution process. A mediation lawyer understands the value of speaking objectively with the counterpart counsel in order to keep the door to dialogue always open. How does a mediation lawyer navigate hostile deadlocks without provoking the counterpart counsel? How does a mediation lawyer remain objective and yet, convince the client of loyalty and competence?

Episode 4:
Cold-Feet Settlements: Counselling Clients during Decision-Making

Mediation lawyers often play the role of coach / advisor to their clients in a mediation setting but spring into action during climatic moments of a mediation that lead to a settlement. Clients tend to second-guess and overthink the deals they are offering or accepting, leading to delays and u-turns. What is the importance of a mediation lawyer at this stage? How does a mediation lawyer handle cold-feet situations?

Episode 5:
A Collaborative Lawyer: Sustaining a Viable Mediation Advocacy Practice

It's time to address the elephant in the room, a.k.a 'the money in mediation'. Mediations often conclude in 20-25 hours and therefore, the misconception exists that mediation lawyers can only bill for as many hours. Besides financial sustainability, lawyers are also concerned about how their reputation as a 'strong lawyer' is impacted with a mediation practice. To what extent is it possible to build a financially sustainable legal practice with ADR and is it possible to build a reputation in the market as a 'strong lawyer' with a mediation practice?

Episode 6:
Dispute-Wise Contracts: Mediation Clauses as Safety Switches

It is widely understood and accepted that a mediation clause works as an effective safety switch. Despite this awareness, we feel there is an inorganic push required for corporates and businesses to embrace a well drafted multi-tiered dispute resolution clause and make their contracts dispute-wise. What are the challenges? How can we incentivise in-house legal teams to take this positive step?
