Watkins on Business Mediation.
Atlanta-based Barnes & Thornburg partner John L. Watkins recently launched a multi-part site called Watkins Mediation: Business Mediation Resources, which includes a blog he writes. Both a litigator and ADR veteran--he represented clients in arbitrations and mediations long before that was cool--Watkins gets that ADR is designed to be a useful tool for clients. And not a cynical wankfest for their lawyers. Read his reminder in "It's Mediation, Not a Trial". Also see his three-part series on "Insurance and Mediation", which includes reservation of rights and coverage issues. Bonus: Watkins writes like a human being who happens to be a fine lawyer and commercial litigator. His writing is nuanced--but clear, concise and a pleasure to read.
