Last night, partner Alexander Oddy accepted the 2008 CPR Law Firm Award for Excellence in ADR for his firm, Herbert Smith, of London, at Intercontinental-The Barclay hotel in New York, at the CPR Institute's annual awards dinner. 

Today, Oddy sits down for the first of two talks with International Dispute Negotiation host Mike McIlwrath on mediation advocacy.  Oddy provides four of eight tips on how to best prepare and represent your client in a mediation session in IDN 57--Effective Advocacy in Mediation and Dispute Negotiation. 

Next Friday, Jan. 23, Oddy will return for Part 2, with tips five through eight.  This week's episode will move to the IDN archive.
