Greenbelt, MD – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, today announced the addition of Hon. Howard S. Chasanow (Ret.) to its panel.

He will specialize as a mediator for disputes in a variety of areas including Business/Commercial, Engineering and Construction, Environmental, Insurance, Intellectual Property, Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury, Professional Liability and Real Property.

“Judge Chasanow has an impressive reputation for his intelligence, preparation and commitment and can settle even the most difficult cases,” said Chris Poole, JAMS president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to have him join our panel and provide our Washington, D.C. area clients and attorneys with another high quality option to settle cases.”

“I am in the fortunate position of having a thriving mediation practice,” said Judge Chasanow. “In practical terms it has grown to a point where I need to restructure and I am excited to team with JAMS and open a Maryland resolution center. While JAMS efficiently handles the case management and administration side, I can concentrate on the work I love doing, which is resolving disputes. I also look forward to working with JAMS to expand the impressive list of JAMS neutrals in the Mid-Atlantic area.”
