Painting by Numbers: Offers and Demands: Where Did You Come Up With That? (Breakout Session 5A)

2:20 – 3:20 pm

Grand Ballroom 8A
Convention Level


Believe it or not, one of the hardest things for a party in mediation to do is to come up with an effective presentation of demands and offers. A strategy is needed in presenting numbers, whether the initial demand or the final offer. Numbers are the “tea leaves” that allow the parties to read where a mediation may go and provide a road map to the final result. A panel with various backgrounds and perspectives will discuss strategies and the important role of numbers to get where the parties need to go to get a case resolved.
