Drawing on more than thirty years of practice in commercial, banking and real estate litigation, Dean Christopherson, Dawe & Christopherson, has a successful track record as an evaluative mediator, using a cordial and attentive approach. After reviewing briefs and holding pre-mediation calls with counsel, he focuses on those few key issues on which he believes the ultimate resolution of the case will turn. Caucuses often consider how the trier of fact might view crucial evidence or evaluate credibility, and consideration of both the financial and emotional costs of continued litigation. His input, with fresh eyes, regularly leads to the resolution of the case.
