ABOUT NAM (NATIONAL ARBITRATION AND MEDIATION)
Founded in 1992, NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) has been recognized for its superb customer service and exceptional panel of arbitrators and mediators. In 2016, NAM was once again named the #1 ADR firm in the United States by The National Law Journal’s Annual Reader Rankings Survey with two of NAM’s mediators voted among the Top 3 in the U.S. for the third year in a row. Additionally, 7 of NAM’s neutrals were named 2016 National Law Journal Alternative Dispute Resolution Champions, as part of a select group of only 48 nationwide. Consistent with being the nation’s premier ADR provider, NAM was ranked as the #1 ADR firm by The New York Law Journal for the last six years, and its neutrals comprise 9 of the Top 10 Mediators and 8 of the Top 10 Arbitrators. NAM’s panel members are consistently rated among the very best neutrals in the country.
