Advising and Representing Clients at Mediation is an invaluable guide for lawyers, surveyors and other professionals. It will assist at every stage of the mediation process from persuading the other party to mediate, to preparing for and taking part in the mediation itself, and advising clients on what to expect and how to conduct themselves at a mediation.

The book also offers extensive checklists and precedents, practical advice from experienced mediators, and a clear explanation of the law as it currently stands.

"I wish I had read this book before I first represented clients as a solicitor at mediations. It is packed with real life tips and examples. This book will help a representative get the very best out of the mediation process for their client."
