NAM is a true pioneer in the field of ADR and continues to be on the forefront of new initiatives and programs. These include NAM’s proprietary case management system and its myADR platform and mobile technology.
With a network of nearly 2,500 mediators and arbitrators, NAM’s panel of neutrals has a broad range of experience. The neutrals on NAM’s panel often bring 20+ years experience from the state and federal benches upon joining NAM. For those not coming from the bench, NAM’s arbitrators and mediators are legal practitioners that have been engaged in the practice of law for well over 15 years and are highly respected in their specific areas of expertise. Providing the legal community with superior and experienced neutrals is at the heart of what NAM does.
