Sam Glover tipped me off to a piece about how to entertain your clients during the long empty spaces that are the hallmark of a mediation session. Advice like “chat up the mediator” and “get to know your client.” No disrespect to the gentlemen solicitor authors (wait, does Canada have solicitors or lawyers?) but people, we need more.
What if the mediator doesn’t make many visits? What if your client is a terrible bore? Let’s spice things up with some much better ways to pass the time when you are locked in a room with someone for hours at a time.
