Lawyer Monthly - Legal Awards 2022

Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2022 ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION LAWYER OF THE YEAR How would you summarise your role in JAMS? I do large, complex mediations and arbitrations, primarily with commercial cases, class actions, intellectual property, employment discrimination and other types of employment law, as well as insurance cases, disputes involving governmental entities and municipalities and environmental disputes. I also do neutral evaluations for parties in all of these areas. A neutral evaluation is basically helping the parties to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their cases so that they can better strategise and position their cases to achieve best results. I am also currently doing claims allocations with large settlements. For example, I am doing a $460 million settlement of the University of Michigan sex abuse case, allocating and deciding claims in that case. How has your work since arriving at JAMS differed from your practice prior to joining? As my practice has grown, I have started doing larger, more complex and higher-profile cases. I am also doing more neutral evaluations, trying to help parties understand and better position their cases for a successful result. I am also doing some claims allocations, which I was not earlier. What was it that initially led you to focus on alternative dispute resolution above other areas of law? I have always enjoyed the process of helping to bring people together to find common ground. This goes back to the time when I served in the US Senate as a legislative assistant to a senator, when we would work on legislation Mediator & Arbitrator - JAMS Gerald E. Rosen (Ret.) Hon. 19 USA
