In February 2021, the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates passed Resolution 100 in support of commercial arbitration. The Resolution provides:
RESOLVED, that the American Bar Association supports the use of arbitration of business-to-business disputes, both domestically and internationally, as an efficient and economical method of dispute resolution.
Although much has been written negatively about consumer (B2C) arbitration, and rightly so, this must be distinguished from commercial (B2B) arbitration, which has numerous advantages over traditional business litigation in court, many of which I’ve written about in various legal publications over the years. B2B ADR provides fast, fair, expert, economical, private, customized justice.
Although I have chosen in recent years to spend very little time representing parties in ADR proceedings as their lawyer-advocate (and do not seek new law clients), I do focus principally upon serving as a neutral Arbitrator or Mediator in business to business disputes. I am happy to speak with you if you have a complex commercial matter in need of Mediation. If you need my service as an arbitrator, however, I cannot communicate with one side of a case alone, without the other side(s) participating. This can be arranged by e-mail copied to all involved.
I have left intact (at least for now) much of my original website from the decades when I split my time between serving as lawyer-advocate and as neutral arbitrator or mediator, to allow prospective parties to get the flavor of my approach to cases. It remains essentially the same – serious, attentive, responsive, cost-effective – although my role has shifted from representative to neutral; and now retired.
