Abstract

When lawyers, the ultimate comers of dispute resolution services, opt to mediate or arbitrate, they may select neutrals, shape the process and advocate in the chosen dispute resolution process in a way that comports with the lawyer’s own conflict style and is more akin to the lawyer’s litigation-bent, sometimes at the expense of the client’s expressed needs. This column will discuss this tension and suggest ways ethical lawyers might proceed.

Keywords: dispute resolution, conflict, ethical lawyers
