Achieving Consensus in Bankruptcy Disputes Through Mediation

In this program, three expert mediators, two retired judges and one federal judicial mediator provide insights on what to expect in a mediation of a dispute in a contested matter or adversary proceeding in a bankruptcy case. They focus on the types of bankruptcy disputes that are well-suited for mediation; procedures for implementing a mediation referral, including the referral order and mediation agreement; confidentiality issues; the conduct of the mediation session; different mediation techniques; strategies for parties and counsel to conduct effective negotiations in mediations; and bad-faith participation in mediation and remedies for such conduct. The panelists also provide their insights on traps and problems to avoid before, during and after mediation, and best practices for counsel and parties in mediations.
