Enforcing Confidential Mediation Settlements [Subrogation & Recovery Alert]

October 17, 2013

It’s the morning of your big mediation and you are fully prepared to resolve your case without sacrificing key positions. You and your attorney have set your expectations as to what will happen, who will speak, what the mediator should do, and what your attorney will say on your behalf. The mediation begins with a mediator’s own opening statement about the mediation process and all parties are asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. As the facts and dispute loom large in your mind, you half pay attention to the mediator’s words and you sign the confidentiality statement agreement without a second thought. The confidentiality provision makes anything said at the mediation confidential and privileged and, thus, cannot be shared with anyone outside of the mediation for any purpose.
