At ARM, our panel is divided into two separate practice areas – personal injury and commercial practice groups. We believe that both areas are quite distinct and require a unique set of skills and background to facilitate settlement. While they can have many similarities, it is important to note, that choosing the “right neutral” with the requisite subject matter expertise can be key to implementing an integrated conflict alternative for your unique circumstances.
Personal Injury Practice Areas
Personal injury cases often involve more than just a zero-sum negotiation. ARM neutrals are keenly aware that the recognition of the harm caused or in some cases an apology can be more powerful than monetary compensation.
On the other hand, in many cases it all comes down to money. Calculation of risk and predicting what might happen at trial can weigh heavily on the potential for settlement. Our neutrals are trained and experienced to handle every aspect of tort litigation.
ARM’s Personal Injury panel includes retired jurists and skilled attorney specialists who have gained the trust and respect of both plaintiff and defense bars, as well as insurance counsel and/or adjusters.

Commercial Practice Areas
At the outset of every business/commercial transaction, parties to a contract or agreement have the best of intentions. However, when there are divergent interests, conflicts inevitably arise. More often than not, with the number parties involved in a given contract or transaction (partners, customers, vendors, suppliers, employers, employees etc.) disagreements are almost customary. At ARM, our Commercial Panel seeks to help solve issues quickly and efficiently with the goal of saving business relationships and getting your main objectives back on track.
ARM’s Commercial panel includes retired jurists and skilled attorney specialists who have the background, experience and tenacity to facilitate resolution on all types of commercial matters. They understand and consider the legal, business and personal aspects of every dispute. As a result, ARM offers a flexible and customized approach to address the often unique and sensitive aspects of your commercial cases.
