As hard as it is to find good trial lawyers, it is almost as difficult to find good mediators. Many mediators today are message takers who bring a settlement offer from the plaintiffs to the defendants and then take counter-offers from the defendants to the plaintiffs. Like many attorneys, Klein & Wilson has become dissatisfied with most mediators and believes that an effective mediator must understand the strengths and weaknesses of each side's position before bringing the sides together toward a settlement.
Lawyers With Extensive Mediation Experience
Klein & Wilson's attorneys have long experience in the courtroom and understand the risks and pitfalls of trial. Because they have such broad experience in a wide range of subject matters, they are able to help attorneys and their clients achieve settlements they might not have been able to achieve themselves.
Gerald A. Klein and Mark B. Wilson have extensive litigation and trial experience in a variety of areas, including complex business litigation, legal malpractice, insurance coverage, copyright, trade secrets, and construction defect litigation. Mr. Klein and Mr. Wilson know what it takes to settle cases and can convincingly explain the strengths and weaknesses of a case in order to achieve a settlement.
Unlike many mediators, Mr. Klein and Mr. Wilson have the trial experience to recognize what can happen in a courtroom and why settlement may be in the best interests of each party. Moreover, Mr. Klein and Mr. Wilson have the business experience to help litigants consider creative settlements that can be a "win-win," rather than an unhappy experience where everyone believes they have lost.
