Brad Kane Mediation
With more than 30 years "in the trenches" of litigation and countless successful mediations, Mr. Kane is rarely surprised. As your mediator, he knows how to frame and communicate each parties’ relative strengths and weaknesses in order to reach creative solutions to even the bitterest disputes.
A Proactive Mediation Process
Our process is clear, effective, and transparent:
Pre-mediation meeting with counsel to discuss overcoming settlement obstacles.
Analyze mediation briefs, supporting evidence and address key issues or facts.
Parties exchange draft documents with goal of getting signatures on long-form documents at mediation.
Parties submit final drafts and supplemental briefings with goal of reaching a resolution.
If parties cannot resolve the case, I will outline the steps necessary to create a settlement.
Mediation Consulting is helping the attorneys: (i) get the case into a mediation posture; (ii) prepare an effective mediation presentation; (iii) overcome Opposing Counsel’s reasonably anticipated evidence and arguments; and (iv) develop a meaningful settlement strategy.
Mediation Coaching is real time assistance for the attorneys, while they are actually in the mediation.
