Richard and Noah’s experience as senior executives, in-house counsel and outside counsel provides them the requisite skill set, insight and perspective to manage complex arbitration proceedings and mediate disputes effectively. Each is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, an accredited mediator of the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution, a member of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, a CPR Distinguished Neutral and a member of AAA panels.

And Noah and Richard share at least one other attribute: they don't take themselves nearly as seriously as they take the matters entrusted to them.
