Detroit – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, today announced the official opening of a Resolution Center in Detroit. The move expands JAMS presence in the Midwest and signifies its commitment to Michigan and the City of Detroit, with four well-known leaders in the law serving as the local panel of neutrals.
Detroit was the natural choice for our next Resolution Center opening because of the highly respected judges and attorneys involved, the way in which the Michigan legal community embraces alternative dispute resolution, and the resurgence of the Detroit economy and revitalization of the city. We look forward to making an impact in this legal market with our one-of-a-kind panel.
-Chris Poole, JAMS President and CEO
The four neutrals who have joined JAMS to launch the Detroit Resolution Center are:
