Rick Mikels will speak at the 42nd Annual Southeastern Bankruptcy Law Institute Conference on the topic of, "Let's Try to Work This Out: Best Practices in Bankruptcy Mediation".

Event Information

Mediation often provides a path to resolution of bankruptcy disputes that is less expensive and more efficient than litigation, and is more likely to lead to a result that reaches the real needs of the parties.  We'll explore some of the basics of mediation, including why and when you should use mediation, how it differs from arbitration, whether the mediator should be appointed by the court or chosen by the parties, and how best to prepare for an effective mediation.  And we'll look at different styles of mediators, and discuss how different styles may lead to different outcomes.
