"Mark Partridge teaches readers how to put into practice the wisdom and enlightenment of effective dispute resolution, and thus will help to substantially increase the chances of achieving better outcomes faster." -- Michael Leathes, Executive Director, International Mediation Institute

"It will give IP practitioners much-needed guidance in the world of ADR. It is well organized, with a clear table of contents and adequate index, and it contains useful examples and resources (most publicly available on the Internet and most victims of occasionally indifferent copyediting), as well as instructive anecdotal experiences that the author, a distinguished practitioner, employs to illustrate the text. Of particular value are the comparisons between mediation and arbitration, and the relative merits, as well as the pitfalls, of each." -- Samuel Fifer, The Trademark Reporter

"This is a well-written, well researched book. It is easy to read, and possesses a clarity of purpose, often absent from legal texts. It is designed with the needs of the IP and general litigation practitioner in mind and it clearly meets its goals. Whether beginner or experienced advocate, this is one of those books that should be part of your legal practice collection on your library shelf." -- Colm Brannigan, Web Journal of Current Legal Issues
