On June 1, 2105, the Connecticut Bar Association published a new episode of “Bar Chat”, its series of interviews about issues of interest to bar association members. That segment featured Peter Benner, a former chair of the CBA Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Section, and me, a former co-chair. We were interviewed by Doug Brown, executive director of the CBA on the topic of “Options in Alternative Dispute Resolution“.
We highlighted a few of the ways that ADR, especially mediation, can help attorneys to serve their clients more effectively. Because my focus is on conflicts that tend to involve people in some sort of ongoing relationship, the virtues of a flexible, relatively inexpensive alternative to litigation are a topic I am always eager to discuss!
