Mediation for the Design Professional

Mediation is a cost-effective dispute resolution vehicle commonly used in clashes involving design professionals. It can also be used as a mechanism to better understand the claims and respective positions of the other parties to a dispute before or during litigation.

Leila Sadeghi, Esq. and Peter Stacy, Esq., respected construction attorneys who run the new Practice Coach service for AIA members, present an overview of the benefits of mediation as a non-binding dispute resolution vehicle to help members better understand the role of the mediator and how to prepare for mediation, and next steps if mediation fails – and more.  This webinar will provide design professionals insight into how mediation is used to resolve claims or to further the investigation of complex issues commonly found in construction-related litigation.

Once you review the webinar recording and complete and submit the Self Assessment Test, AIA members will receive 1.5 AIA Continuing Education Credits.
