The current COVID-19 situation may have encouraged disputing parties to negotiate where they might otherwise would litigate. Aaron Chaisson joins Mediation Minute host Rebecca Wisbar to analyze the many benefits of these negotiations, even if negotiations weren’t “Plan A.” Aaron identifies the process of finding the “pressure points” in a case and how experience provides perspective on the vantage point of all parties involved. The conversation closes with a discussion of post-trial negotiations plus the fact goodwill is not an endless resource and should be preserved rather than wasted.
