With his presence from the beginning of the process, the lawyer protects his client and his interests effectively. From the preliminary step of the mediation, the lawyer assists the mediator by giving him all the necessary documents that are essential to the upcoming mediation. When the mediation begins, the lawyer has the time to present the case from his client’s point of view. As soon as the private meetings with the mediator and each party start, the lawyer’s role is to help his client understand what is beneficial for him, how he should move and respond to any proposals and to identify any areas that he should bring his attention. If an agreement is reached, the lawyers should write and sign it as well.
