The AAA Master Mediator Panel for commercial and construction disputes is comprised of exceptionally experienced mediators skilled in helping parties in large, complex cases negotiate productively to reach settlement efficiently.
These select panel members include former federal or appellate-level judges,
award-winners for excellence in mediation, and writers and lecturers on the theory and practice of mediation. Each member of the panel has been independently vetted by attorneys with expertise in large-claim mediations.
In cases with claims or counterclaims exceeding $75,000, both the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures and the Construction Industry Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures require parties, unless they opt out, to mediate in conjunction with arbitration. Master mediators can best achieve the goal of allowing parties to return their focus to their companies’ core business activities.
