Why Our Simulated Mediation Studies Are So Helpful

The trial consultants with The Advocates were the first of the national trial consulting firms to offer a reliable process for the study of opposing party and counsel decision making in the United States. Our study process has many intricate parts and subtleties that result in obtaining information about how any particular parties and opposing trial attorneys will go about making a decision about mediation in a particular matter of great importance.

The Advocates can help you to understand the perceptions of your opposing parties and how best to persuade them to settle the case on terms that your client believes are favorable.

In a settlement or mediation environment, the audience that you want to persuade is different from that of the courtroom, but the demands for your best advocacy are present, nonetheless. You or your client may want to settle the case, but you may not be sure about the best themes or methods to use in persuading the opposing attorney, or opposing litigant, or even the mediator. You may not be sure about how best to present your side of the case at mediation and evaluate the responses from your opponents in a way that will be helpful in getting the case settled favorably for your clients.

Over the past few years we have constructed methods of developing successful mediation strategy by staging a mock mediation that incorporates the same elements that you will encounter in the real mediation. We utilize well established scientific study techniques in studying the responses of people specially selected to represent your opposing trial team and their clients. As a result of a mock mediation study, we can provide you with reliable recommendations intended to enhance the effectiveness of your work in getting the case settled.
