We are pleased to announce that Hon. Jennifer Togliatti (Ret.) has joined ARM’s distinguished panel of neutrals

We are pleased to announce that Hon. Jennifer Togliatti (Ret.) has joined ARM’s distinguished panel of neutrals and is available full-time as a mediator, arbitrator and private judge. 

Judge Togliatti’s judicial career began in 1998 when she was elected Justice of the Peace for the Las Vegas Justice Court and, in 1999, served as Chief Judge. She also presided over specialty court dockets for the Eighth Judicial District Court and served as acting Federal Magistrate for U.S. District Court. In 2002, she was appointed by then Governor Kenny Guinn to the Eighth Judicial District Court and has served there for the last 16 years, where she presided over 250 jury trials and conducted over 300 settlement conferences. Her settlements have involved complex, multi-party cases with resolutions totaling well over a half-billion dollars.

As a result, she developed a reputation for being a “miracle worker” and a “closer.” So much so, that the Nevada Supreme Court looked to Judge Togliatti to settle mass tort cases by appointing her as a mandatory settlement judge. At the time, it was unheard of for a district court judge to be appointed by grant of motion to oversee such matters.  
 
For instance, in 2012 Judge Togliatti was called upon by the Nevada Supreme Court to conduct a mandatory settlement conference for civil lawsuits that were filed as a result of the hepatitis C scare that rocked Southern Nevada in 2007 and 2008. She was also involved in settling cases related to the endoscopy scandal based on different theories of liability with different corporate defendants, all of which she settled. On the Supreme Court appointment case alone, her complex settlement conference lasted nine days, and her relentless negotiations resulted in a settlement that, was seen as one of the largest in Nevada history with an undisclosed amount widely reported in the media to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.  

Then in 2014, she settled a massive construction defect case involving Tutor Perini Corp., various sub-contractors, casino giant MGM Resorts International and CityCenter’s Harmon Hotel. With more than 400 million in damage claims at stake, 15 months of negotiations, and at times working 14 different caucus rooms, Judge Togliatti brokered a global settlement reported at the time by the Las Vegas Review Journal to be 195 million. She saved the parties and the court countless years of trial and appellate litigation on a very complex case that many said would be almost impossible to try.

“Judge Togliatti is one of the most sought after judges in Nevada. I am so proud that she chose ARM to begin the next chapter of her career,” said Abbas Kazerounian Director and Founder of ARM. “Having someone of her calibre on our roster adds another dimension to our growing panel here in Nevada. She has an impeccable reputation as a jurist and as a mediator. Simply put, Judge Togliatti is the best.”

Hear from our TOP NEUTRALS

Some might say it’s our facility, others might say it’s our success rate with mediations, but in reality it all boils down to one thing: OUR NEUTRALS.  

The strength of any ADR provider lies in the strength of its panel, and we strive to provide our clients with mediators and arbitrators who have proven experience and stellar reputations.  They are the ARM Advantage.

Recently, we had the opportunity to sit down with some of our Top Neutrals to ask them, what makes ARM so special.  You will hear from Hon. Jackie Glass (Ret.), Justice Nancy Saitta (Ret.) and Paul Haire, Esq. and in the process you will get to know them, their styles, and their approaches.  

You will get to see firsthand how truly special they are.  

“Our job is to be accessible and make things happen for the people who need them to happen.” – Hon. Jackie Glass (Ret.)

“From the very beginning, from case management to support staff, to neutrals who understand what it takes to get a case done, ARM has it all.” – Justice Nancy Saitta (Ret.)

“Clearly over 90% of cases resolve outside the courtroom setting, and here at Advanced Resolution Management we provide the environment to make that happen efficiently and effectively.” Paul Haire, Esq.

ARM IS PROUD TO INTRODUCE ISHI KUNIN, ESQ.

We are pleased to announce that Ishi Kunin, Esq. has joined ARM’s distinguished panel of neutrals and is available full-time to serve as a mediator and special master.  Ishi is a Nevada board certified family law specialist and the owner and founder of the Kunin Law Group where she has represented clients in family law, guardianship, adoption, surrogacy, as well as other significant legal matters for more than three decades.  

In addition to her work as an advocate, she has been serving as a mediator since 1997 when she was approached by the Nevada Supreme Court to serve as a Settlement Judge. Her success as a mediator is evidenced by the success she has had in settling hundreds of matters outside her primary field of practice, such as personal injury, business and real estate disputes.  As a result, she has not only developed but maintains a reputation for being both fair and reasonable.  So much so that it has prompted many of her peers to start calling upon her regularly as a private mediator on their own cases.  It’s no surprise that at the end of 2017, Ishi decided to transition from litigator to full-time mediator despite being at the top of her field.  

“Ishi makes for another great addition to our panel here in Nevada,” said Jessica Stock, Director of Panel Development at ARM.  “Her reputation precedes her.  We are also thrilled to add another family law and probate expert to the panel, along with Roger Giuliani.  Finding two strong mediators who will complement each other in their area of expertise was very important to us.”
