Based on our reputation as fair and effective mediators, we are often retained to help our clients resolve their disputes without resorting to litigation. We bring together our litigation and negotiation experience to provide effective alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, and several of our lawyers are certified mediators and members of mediator panels through the Massachusetts courts, state agencies and the Real Estate Bar Association for Massachusetts. Our mediation experience includes:
Resolving dozens of environmental and land use disputes -- involving oil and hazardous material contamination, surface water flooding, premises liability, and many other issues - privately and through court panels.
Achieving accord in a complex multi-party Superfund allocation case.
Mediating dozens of wetlands cases at the DEP.
Resolving affordable housing appeals at the Housing Appeals Committee.
Reaching agreements in mediated real estate and neighbor disputes, including those involving multi-million dollar beachfront properties, through REBA.
In addition to mediation, we have provided other ADR services, such as serving as a court-appointed Master and as an arbitrator in complex multi-party Superfund cost recovery cases.
