COVID-19 has injected an insolvency component into numerous situations and disputes. This Bankruptcy Section kickoff program is designed to provide attendees with basic information about the use of mediation to help solve intractable issues arising in consumer matters.   As a cost-effective and voluntary process, mediation provides parties and counsel with an opportunity to resolve matters outside of the traditional adversarial nature of the legal system.  In certain situations, mediation may lead to outcomes that are not typically obtainable within an adjudicated proceeding such as improved personal and business relationships.  The focus of this session will be on understanding the fundamental components of mediation including when, where and how to use it to achieve client objectives with a particular focus on its use in insolvency settings.

This program is free for members and non-members alike. If you have any questions, please email Doug Newton at dnewton@bostonbar.org.
