Cases involving high conflict parties are bound to test your patience and limits, and increase your stress while
decreasing your confidence. These cases beg for structure but unless you start with structure and know how to
structure a case, whether in litigation or mediation, you’ll likely be caught in a whirlwind feeling a bit helpless.
When high conflict opposing counsel is involved, it can be even worse, as they feed the fire and
carry the torch for a high conflict client, which may feel challenging beyond your expertise.
However, there is a path for handling high conflict parties or opposing counsel, or even others in the legal system.
There is a way to determine if the lack of civility is just zealous representation or high conflict, by definition.
In this session, Megan Hunter, co-founder and CEO of the High Conflict Institute in the U.S. will discuss:
- Identifying high conflict early on
- Structuring the case/mediation
- Managing the case
- Self-represented litigants
