Peggy Foley Jones to speak at the 2019 ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Spring Conference on April 12th

News & Updates

The 2019 ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Spring Conference will be held in Minneapolis, MN on April 10-13th.  Peggy Foley Jones will participate in a panel discussion on the  topic of “Overcoming Anchoring and Impasse by Effectively Using the Mediator’s Proposal and Bracketing.”

Too often parties waste valuable time in mediation by giving too much weight to their opening offer and demand instead of trying to get to a reasonable settlement range. Such “anchoring” can cause parties distress, cause mistrust of the opponent and make for a long day. Using a role play exercise, three experienced mediators will share their experience using brackets and mediator’s proposals to assist parties to reach a reasonable settlement range sooner than later.  Click here for more information
