Mediation Can and Should Continue

March 31, 2020 —  There is no reason any mediation should halt due to the fallout from COVID-19. Remote mediation works due to the innovative, widely available technology that is relatively simple to access and use. The advantages of remote mediation include greater accessibility for users; with the convenience and ease of phoning in, if computers or web cams are not available or possible.

Our firm’s technology is state-of-the-art. We can create joint sessions and breakout rooms within the videoconferencing platform as well as allow counsel to make PowerPoint presentations and the exchange of documents. Our experience confirms this type of mediation is as effective as those done in person. A mediator’s experience, knowledge and skill set, together with parties and stakeholders committed to and prepared for the mediation process, are primary drivers of a successful mediation.

Andrews Myers has six mediators, all of whom bring those necessary qualities to any mediation regardless of locale:

Bill Andrews
Ben Westcott
Carson Fisk
Jim Aycock
Tom Myers
Jeff Lefkowitz
