Awards Panelist News

Irvine, Calif. – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, is proud to announce it was featured heavily in the 2014 edition of Who’s Who Legal.

JAMS is identified as the pre-eminent provider of mediation services. It also singles out a number of panelists across the country.

In D.C., Linda Singer is said to be “superb” and a “pioneer,” and served as a special master to the U.S. District Court, SDNY. She is joined by Michael Lewis, who has mediated and arbitrated disputes from the business, public policy, employment, environment and governmental sectors. In New York, Michael Young has conducted more than 1,250 mediations and arbitrations in more than 30 states and internationally, and is viewed as “the king of financial services mediation” according to admiring peers.

Robert Davidson was recommended to researchers for both his mediation and arbitration practices.
