When You Least Expect It: Mediation on Appeal (Breakout Session 6A)

3:30 – 4:30 pm

Grand Ballroom 8A
Convention Level


After trial, the parties’ positions have hardened; one confident in the vic- tory, the other unhappy with the loss. An appeal may be possible but is it necessary? The panel will address the time, expense, and requirements for filing an appeal; the risks and realities for each side in the appeal process; and the opportunity to mediate a post-trial resolution to eliminate the risks, costs, and consequences of a litigated appeal. The panel will also discuss important outcomes of cases that were appealed and mediated, and share some little known facts about appellate mediation.
