‘Marjorie Mantle’s latest book will be an excellent acquisition both for lawyers with mediation experience and those new to mediation. This practical guide brings the subject to life. Her “dialogues” and “rants” are a funny and effective way of explaining what happens at mediation.’  Rachel Grant, Brodies LLP.

Useful checklists include:

Choosing a mediator, preparing for mediation, assessing mediator performance and assessing your own performance

Flow-charts guide you through the options and processes

Includes a helpful section on responding to client queries about mediation.
