In the health care field, Mr. Keele immersed himself in complex case management and dispute assessment and valuation, adapting seamlessly to ever-changing business and litigation integration strategies as well as to the industry’s dynamic and competitive landscape.
Throughout my career, I’ve selected and worked with many neutrals, which gives me a unique perspective to identify the qualities that make an effective mediator or arbitrator, such as patience, perseverance and an ability to really listen. I will do my best to bring each of these qualities, along with empathy, fairness and integrity, to every dispute I handle as a JAMS neutral. I’m humbled and excited by this opportunity.
