This training begins with an exploration of the special considerations for mediators to appreciate when engaged in commercial disputes.  Classes include an in-depth analysis of the impact that commercial practice has on the manner in which a mediator should prepare for and facilitate negotiations of these cases.  Participants will engage in several mediation simulations, discussions and exercises to help build up an appreciation for the role of the commercial mediator.

“Ms. Gleason Alvarez has a strong command of the subject matter. Her knowledge is vast and her delivery of the detailed information is clear, organized and precise. She has excellent oral skills, was able to manage technology, questions, zoom breakout rooms and many other aspects of her class. Each day we had interactive mediation practices where every student had an opportunity to act as mediator... This class exceeded my expectations and I look forward to participating in any other class offered by Ms. Gleason Alvarez.”
