Steyer Lowenthal Boodrookas Alvarez & Smith LLP is pleased to announce that partner Jill M. Manning has added Private Mediation services to her practice
Jill M. Manning is an experienced litigator with a reputation for creative problem-solving, making her particularly adept at mediating complex disputes. With twenty-five years of complex litigation experience in federal courts nationwide, Ms. Manning is able to quickly harness and dissect legal disputes and pinpoint the critical issues holding up settlement. An active listener with strong interpersonal skills, Ms. Manning strives to improve the quality and tone of communication between parties in order to facilitate a productive discussion and increase the chances of reaching a settlement. Ms. Manning specializes in antitrust and unfair competition, securities, class actions, and partner/founder disputes.
Why choose Ms. Manning as a mediator? She will help you and your client:
- Save time and money by reaching a speedy resolution.
- Eliminate the risks of litigation by allowing your client, not the judge or jury, to decide how the case is resolved.
- Craft a creative business-driven solution that a court could not order.
- Preserve an ongoing business or personal relationship.
- Keep the negotiations and any resolution confidential.
Regardless of the efforts and skill of the mediator, a complete resolution of the case is not always reached during mediation. However, mediation often helps the parties gain a better understanding of the case and creates efficiencies in case management. You and your client will leave mediation with a better understanding of the case, the strengths and weaknesses of each side, the likelihood of liability, the dollar range of damages, and the obstacles toward settlement.
Ms. Manning is an experienced Early Neutral Evaluator with the Northern District of California, and a trained private mediator. For information regarding rates and availability, please contact Mike Terry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
