Bob believes that mediation enables the parties to resolve their dispute by considering business, relationship and other interests that go far beyond the legal issues that a judge or arbitrator can decide. People are much more likely to be satisfied with an outcome to which they agree in mediation than with an outcome forced upon them by a decision of a third party.
While many mediators have practiced law, Bob is one of the few who combine that experience with a background in business. Bob understands how people involved in business conflicts usually have interests much broader than mere legal issues. As such, he is well equipped to help parties identify the widest possible range of options for settling disputes. As a skilled and experienced attorney, he also brings a full understanding of the legal backdrop that informs any dispute and that may become of paramount importance if the parties are unable to resolve their dispute.
Parties to a dispute mediated by Bob put their trust in him to use his seasoned outlook and vast experience to get to the heart of the dispute and help them find the common ground that leads to an outcome acceptable to all.
Bob's areas of particular mediation expertise are business, real estate, construction, estates and bankruptcy. The list associated with each category below is representative, not exhaustive:
“Clearly this case would not have ended in an agreed settlement without your assistance...It was very obvious that you are a gifted mediator.”
