Virtual Mediation: Dispute Resolution during COVID-19


ocial distancing has changed many aspects of the legal industry, including the way we conduct mediations. Travel bans and concerns regarding at-risk individuals being in close contact with others is requiring us, when necessary or requested, to conduct mediations via telephone and video conferencing. Conducting remote mediations is a cost saving measure, taking any travel time out of the equation. We use Zoom for our mediation platform. Zoom is particularly beneficial to a mediation because it allows the mediator to put parties into a virtual break room as if they were split up into separate rooms at the office. Attorneys and their clients do not have to be at the same physical location or share the same computer for this to happen. With Zoom, the mediator can separate the attorney from their client, if the need arises, speak with them directly and confidentially. Zoom is compatible with Google Docs, should sharing of documents be necessary. If you are considering mediation for your dispute resolution, contact Jim Schrier for a brief pre-mediation meeting to get familiar with Zoom.
