Shel was tasked with helping us find a resolution in a very contentious business dispute that had been dragging though discovery for months. When we started the process, we were millions apart in the offer and counter-offer. With three different parties, seven different attorneys, and several complex business issues at stake, Shel came to the mediation prepared. I found his willingness to actually listen to our clients -- rather than wasting time telling war stories like other mediators have done -- to be extremely productive. At the end of the mediation, one of the attorneys for another party in the case admitted that he didn't hold out much hope for resolving the case at mediation before he arrived. Shel made it happen. Our clients, and everyone involved, were greatly impressed with his approach.
