Disputes that lead to mediation can be “perfect storms” for parties. They must make unscheduled decisions (which they have not made so far) with other contestants (who they dislike) in the personal mediation environment. Lawyers respond to complexity by simplifying and reducing litigation to what is legally relevant, which abolishes the law (z.B money). Legal experts see litigation as scheduled decisions, centralized management and the implementation of a SOP, which is typically the most likely judicial outcome. This explains why lawyers may be frustrated by their own client`s ability to grasp the mathematics of billing options. Lawyers and parties can engage in fundamentally different discussions at the mediation table. 7.4. The parties heresfrey the right to use, in law or any other form of evidence, anything that has happened during mediation, against each other and/or against IMI: (former) members of the IMI Board of Directors or persons who are employed by IMI or who are related to IMI, consider or act on each other to ensure that the mediator or any other person involved in the mediation is, as a witness or by any other means, with respect to the information provided and/or recorded during the mediation or content of the agreement within the meaning of Article 10.1. 2.7.
If the contracting parties fail to reach an agreement on the place of mediation and/or the language or languages of arbitration, the mediator decides. The arbitration procedure is subject to the procedural law of the conciliation seat. Threats related to mediation should be used with caution. People respond to threats with fear and tend to focus on controlling the emotional effects of fear rather than protecting themselves from the threat that fear causes. Witte  says that those at risk are generally unaware of the threat and how they might avoid the threat. Instead, they engage in three possible reactions to reduce their anxiety, such as: The following table compares the differences between court and mediation procedures, which explains some of the characteristics of lawyer behavior during mediation. Decision-makers will only consider options if they refer to information they already or easily have. When asked to make a judgment, mediation decision-makers rarely seek all relevant information, but complete the search as soon as enough information came to mind to make a judgment with sufficient subjective certainty to satisfy their motivation for accuracy at the time.  However, lawyers use the tribunal as a starting point and model for the design of mediations. Lawyers negotiate from a legal and “in the shadow of the law” in two respects: lawyers see their role in mediating their role in court in the same way – and convince the judge/decision maker. They will try to convince the other side with the same techniques they use to convince the judge in court. A judge in court will have either a neutral attitude towards lawyers or a positive attitude stemming from their similar worldviews and existing professional relationships, if the lawyer is a lawyer in court.
However, during mediation, each decision-maker (as a party) will consider the other lawyer as the alter ego of the other party, with whom they have some negative feeling. You will be much more difficult to convince or influence than a judge. When in doubt and in the face of uncertainty, they must be comfortably brief to reflect on what other people are doing in the same situation.  In particular, they will look for clues from other people they love or admire, not from those who don`t.  Alternatively, they are looking for a relevant and credible source.
