Mediation

 

In the mediation realm, Mr. Christopherson focuses on maintaining a civil and cordial process, requiring the parties to try to look at the dispute through fresh eyes and find collaborative solutions when possible.


“Dean served as a mediator in a matter with a difficult plaintiff (I represented the defendants). Dean did a good job focusing on the facts and legal theories, ultimately helping the parties reach a resolution.”

“My firm recently used Dean as a mediator and we were very satisfied. He spotted the issues with the case and laid a good groundwork for resolution. Resolving our lawsuit was not easy. Dean did a great job getting our dialogue on the healthy path of settlement. The parties, including my client, walked away assured that they had reached the best outcome without going to trial.”

“We selected Dean to mediate a difficult fraudulent conveyance lawsuit based on his resume for handling commercial matters and his very reasonable fee schedule. The case was complicated by legal and factual disagreements. Expectations for settlement going into mediation were low given the positions of the parties. After a full day of mediation and Dean sticking with the case through telephonic follow-up with counsel, a resolution was eventually reached. I give a lot of credit for achieving the settlement to Dean’s insight into the parties’ perceptions and his willingness to continue working with us when settlement seemed impossible. I highly recommend Dean Christopherson as a mediator, especially for a complex real estate matter.”

“I have known Dean Christopherson for nearly 20 years. I know him to be a highly competent commercial litigator, particularly in the banking world where he has practiced for more than 25 years. As a mediator myself, I can attest that, with his calming temperament and quick insight, Dean is in a wonderful position to continue to develop a very successful mediation practice particularly in cases involving in secured transactions and banking litigation. I endorse him without reservation.”
