But lets cut the bull even if you are an attorney participating in the Mediation there is HOURS of down time! In fact this entire blog was thought of, written, edited and posted all from the down time I had at a Mediation I am currently on now! And I have some of the brightest minds sitting around me in an executive conference room reading off iPad, iPhones, laptops and listening to voicemails from emails. There time is valuable and they get work done.

When we have meditations it usually consist of several sessions, multi million dollar deals don't get hashed out in a few hour, its takes several sessions of negotiations. We usually produce a "day in the life' video and a "20/20" type settlement video that we show to all parties and carriers. The set up and making sure this video works and plays and the projector or TV is all set up, pretty much covers my principle responsibilities. So that leaves me time to catch up on a lot of personal stuff I can start to write down an action list of what I need to do and to make some personal phone calls or to write my blog!
So what do you guys in the legal field do while waiting around at meditations?
I find myself trying to stay away from all the goodies and snacks that this executive high rise building has to offer because ToughMudder is no joke and I can't have junk food just cause am waiting around.
