The popular The Mediator's Handbook presents a time-tested, adaptable model for helping people work through conflict. Extensively revised to incorporate recent practice and thinking, the accessible manual format lays out a clear structure for new and occasional mediators while offering a detailed, nuanced resource for professionals. Starting with a new chapter on assessing conflict and bringing people to the table, the first section explains the process step by step, from opening conversations and exploring the situation through the phases of finding resolution—deciding on topics, reviewing options, and testing agreements. The "Toolbox" section details the concepts and skills a mediator needs in order to: Understand the conflict Support the people Facilitate the process Guide decision-making Throughout the book, the emphasis is on what the mediator can do or say now, and on the underlying principles and core methods that can help the mediator make wise choices. Long a popular course textbook for high schools, universities, and training programs, The Mediator's Handbook is also a valued desk reference for professional mediators and a practical guide for managers, organizers, teachers, and anyone working with clients, customers, volunteers, committees, or teams. Jennifer E. Beer, PhD, mediates organizational conflicts, facilitates meetings, and offers related workshops, regularly teaching a negotiation course at Wharton (University of Pennsylvania). Caroline C. Packard, JD led Friends Conflict Resolution Programs for fifteen years and is an organizational conflict response specialist and mediator based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Eileen Stief developed the mediation process presented in the Handbook, training a generation of mediators to work with community, multi-party, and environmental disputes.

Disputes about intellectual property (IP) rights are frequently multinational, with allegations of infringement and arguments about validity and ownership spanning numerous jurisdictions. As an alternative to expensive, risk-prone and time-consuming litigation, out-of-court settlements conducted through mediation are becoming more common, with the added advantage that they are not tied to the geographical scope of the IP rights at stake. This book is the first work of its type devoted to the practical A to Z of IP mediation. It is written in a reader-friendly style which makes it accessible to a wide readership. With numerous case study examples demonstrating the kind of challenges that arise and how they can be met, a team of internationally recognized mediators and IP experts offers in-depth discussion of how mediation mitigates difficulties in such IP areas as the following: • disputes on trademarks, designs, patents, copyrights and other IP rights; • allegations of breach of contract; • licences and transfers; and • R&D cooperation agreements. The authors provide analysis and recommendations about drafting settlement agreements, including standard clauses and enforcement, as well as an overview of the main mediation services which may be used to settle IP disputes. Showing how mediation offers a dispute resolution process at a human level where parties can not only discuss and resolve their differences but also create added value to the existing IP rights and the business surrounding them, the book will be warmly welcomed by lawyers, both in-house and outside counsels, IP professionals in general and rights holders and licensees.
