Irvine, Calif. – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, is proud to announce that it has been selected by ConsensusDocs, one of the most widely used sets of standard form construction contract documents in the United States, for formal listing in its contract forms.
“JAMS is honored to be recognized by ConsensusDocs as an arbitration provider worthy of being named in its contract forms,” said Phil Bruner, director of JAMS Global Engineering and Construction Group. “As one of only two named American providers of construction arbitration services, this is a great opportunity for construction attorneys and their clients to benefit from the use of our efficient and effective neutrals, case management, rules and procedures.”
