Construction professionals and their outside counsel make better decisions in disputes when they control the decision-making process—not a judge, jury, or arbitrator. A mediator should work with outside counsel and the parties to evaluate the realities of the dispute, overcome biases, and help the parties make better decisions for themselves.
Any mediator must exercise authority over a wide variety of disciplines in order to weigh-in strategically. As a negotiator at all corporate levels, I appreciate the complexity, multi-party nature, expert-intensive, and ticking clock inherent to the construction mediation process. I’ve faced the challenging task of presenting intricate construction cases to judges and juries. I know when to engage actively and when to let group dynamics guide the discussion.
My mediation and arbitration practice reflects my commitment to efficiently moving cases to a resolution. I am at home working with technical cases, seemingly irrational opponents, expert opposition, tight schedules, and insurance.
“The best source of knowledge is experience.” – Albert Einstein
Construction disputes are not like other disputes. I have mediated construction disputes involving a wide range of construction issues. This includes everything from subcontractor delays to owner financing and almost everything in between. See my printable bio for a more complete list. My private law practice focused on representing contractors, architects, engineers, subcontractors, material suppliers, banks, sureties, and developers. As in-house counsel, I have advised a general contractor, real estate development company, and a major engineering company.
