ADR – Client
The BASF mediator was exemplary as a mediator – kind, caring, intelligent. She sought to be impartial. She made both sides feel heard and respected. She negotiated a very satisfactory reduction in legal fees charged.
ADR – Robert Charles Friese, Esq., Shartsis Friese
We had an excellent experience and, after 8 1/2 hours of mediation, [our BASF mediator] settled a very difficult case involving claims against four clients of ours by a wealthy investor who claimed inadequate disclosure was made.
