Jerry Roscoe’s experience with environmental matters began in the late 1970’s when, as a Chief Legislative Assistant with the United States Congress, he helped author sections of the Clean Air Act as well as laws governing the production and use of middle distillates, natural gas, and oil. Since then, he has handled complex, multi-party matters involving issues of liability, coverage, cost allocation, and appropriate remediation technology. In 1990, Jerry was trained by the World Wildlife Federation on mediating environmental issues.
Mr. Roscoe frequently presents to corporations, law firms, agencies, and legal associations on mediating disputes in a variety of areas of law. In addition, he has designed dispute resolution processes for Fortune 500 companies and has conducted ADR training to thousands of corporate professionals, attorneys, judges, mediators, and arbitrators in public, private, and international sectors. He is a fellow with the International Academy of Mediators and a long-standing member of The Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution and the D.C. Bar Committee on ADR.
