Abstract

This Article addresses the special dangers of placing one lawyer in a neutral position, as either a mediator who uses legal skills along with other dispute resolution techniques to resolve a dispute or plan a transaction, or an "impartial advisory attorney" who gives legal advice but does not attempt to facilitate an agreement.

Keywords: mediation, mediator, alternative dispute resolution, neutral lawyer
