Mediator and Arbitrator Services

My favorite thing to do in my law practice is to help find a way to “solve the problem” and make a deal when one seems unlikely. My least favorite thing to do in my law practice is to watch people get involved in tremendously expensive, time-consuming, angst-inducing, distracting litigation. To paraphrase the famous quote regarding war, anyone who wishes to litigate has likely never litigated before.

My background as a mediator or arbitrator is an uncommon one. Most mediators and arbitrators have a background as litigators and judges. My background is that of a corporate transactions and contracts “business” lawyer who has done business and deals for a living throughout his career. I have been a large-firm corporate lawyer, the in-house general counsel of large and small companies, a solo lawyer, and an entrepreneur myself. I know how transactions and contracts come together (and come apart) in the real world between real businesspeople. I also have a greater knowledge base of deal-making tools and techniques for structuring settlements than most.
