CASTAYBERT PLLC has extensive experience representing clients and participating as an effective advocate for clients in commercial mediation.  The firm’s lawyers have experience with the spectrum of approaches to mediation: from facilitative, to cooperative, to evaluative.  They have an in-depth understanding of the orientations, strategies, and techniques used by mediators.  The firm prepares its clients for mediation,  helps shape the agenda, prepares submissions to identify and organize the issues,  prepares its clients for caucuses, and helps evaluate the cost and benefits of any proposals.  CASTAYBERT PLLC also knows the techniques to break the impasse and close a deal if a deal is to be had in the client’s interest.  At every step, the firm is mindful of the need to both prepare and to minimize costs while maximizing the benefit of mediation for the client.
