Averting Disputes With Mediation

End Date: 7/12/2018End Time: 10:00 AM

Event Description:
It is indisputable that mediation is a highly effective mechanism for resolving a broad array of disputes. But can it be taken to the next (or really, the previous) level?

Can mediation be used to avert disputes? Noah Hanft submits that the answer is Yes.  There are vast opportunities for creative utilization of mediation principles to identify potential areas of conflict, and address them in ways that not only avoid debilitating disputes, but preserve relationships.  He will discuss how mediation mindset and approaches can be implemented in those ways, looking at both commercial and other contexts.

Noah Hanft is the President and CEO of the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR). A long-time supporter of dispute resolution, Mr. Hanft has devoted his career to finding the most effective and efficient ways to resolve business disputes. Prior to joining CPR, Mr. Hanft was General Counsel and Chief Franchise Officer for MasterCard, where he was responsible for overseeing legal and regulatory affairs, public policy and compliance in addition to a number of business functions including franchise development, licensing, information security and diversity.

Mr. Hanft began his career as an attorney with the Legal Aid Society in New York City. He serves on the Mediation Panels of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and the CPR Panel of Distinguished Neutrals.  He has lectured extensively on the value of dispute resolution in avoiding and controlling litigation. 

Mr. Hanft has an LL.M. from New York University School of Law in trade regulation, a JD from Brooklyn Law School, and a BA from American University, School of Government and Public Administration.
