Testimonials for BASF Mediation Services Panelist: Theodora Lee


“Theodora Lee has a reputation as a fierce advocate, but her skills as an impartial mediator are equally as impressive.”
-Barbara Lawless, Lawless & Lawless


 "Some mediators are skilled at the art of negotiation, facilitating mutual compromise and resolutions acceptable to both sides; other mediators, unfortunately, lack these qualities and add little value.  Based upon my own experience with Ms. Lee, she falls squarely within the former category."


"She has a keen understanding and depth of knowledge of employment law.  She established credibility with the parties early in the day by demonstrating a strong command of the relevant facts and legal issues.  It was apparent she had read and analyzed the parties' briefs thoroughly.  Armed with this knowledge, Ms. Lee quickly honed in on the key strengths and weaknesses of each side's case, and worked hard to solicit additional information to use as leverage points throughout the negotiation.  Even when emotions ran high, Ms. Lee stayed cool and kept the parties focused on the end goal.  She was personable and easy going, qualities which enabled her to develop a rapport with the parties."
