Alternative Dispute Resolution for In-House Counsel
Writing, litigating and resolving disputes with user-friendly mediation and arbitration provisions

Event Description

Millions of business contracts provide for mediation and arbitration as ways of resolving disputes. The agreement to arbitrate or mediate can empower the parties with a great deal of control—over the process and the arbitrator who hears the case, or the mediator who assists the parties in settlement efforts.

 

For busy in-house counsel, the different options and considerations for alternative dispute resolution clauses can seem endless and overwhelming. But the payoffs are immense, as a well-constructed dispute resolution clause can provide certainty by defining the process prior to a dispute, after which agreement becomes more problematic.

 

Join us at 12pm ET on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, for the next edition of our IHC Essentials Series, as Rosemarie Chiusano, and Ann Kotlarski, Esq., of Judicate West, a leading provider of private dispute resolution services, will provide an informative and engaging CLE presentation for in-house counsel on how to navigate the tricky world of ADR. Rosemarie and Ann will discuss:

 

– Key considerations for drafting mediation and arbitration provisions and governing rules;

– best practices for selecting a neutral mediator or arbitrator;

– best practices for getting the most from your mediator; and

– Key considerations for engaging in Virtual ADR

 

This webinar will help in-house counsel write, litigate, and resolve disputes with user-friendly mediation and arbitration provisions.

Rosemarie Chiusano Drohan

 

Rosemarie Chiusano Drohan is based out of the company’s West Los Angeles and Downtown Los Angeles offices and is a member of the executive committee. Rosemarie began her dispute resolution career in New York in 1991 with Judicate Inc., moved to California in 1992, and was an instrumental member of the team in 1993 when Judicate West became a separate entity from the parent company. In addition to her executive team responsibilities, her duties include case management and consulting, in-house training at law firms, insurance companies and the JW staff and neutrals. Rosemarie also maintains an active role in the company’s marketing, advertising and public relations.

 

She earned an associate’s degree in paralegal studies and a bachelor’s degree in business management. She participates on panels for various bar groups, is a frequent speaker at ADR industry events and conferences, and contributes to industry publications.

 

Rosemarie is a founding and currently active board member of the Judicate West Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to justice and legal services for the under privileged.

 

She is also a board member of Public Counsel and the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s Committee on Empowering Women. Spending time with her two boys is her number one priority away from the office, and she also enjoys running, yoga, and wine tasting.

 

Ann Kotlarski, Esq.

 

After 30 years as a successful employment and business/commercial trial lawyer, Ann brings her wealth of experience and skills to JW to serve as an arbitrator and mediator. In her 3 decades as an associate, partner and rainmaker she has tried, arbitrated, and mediated hundreds of cases and implemented many in house ADR programs for clients.

 

In practice, she earned the respect of her clients, colleagues and opposing counsel for her philosophy of limited discovery with a goal towards early resolution. As a result, she was often asked to give presentations in conflict avoidance and serve as a neutral fact finder. Ann states “I understand the emotional dynamics of conflict for both sides. One of my goals as a mediator is to create an atmosphere of frank and open communication between the parties, demonstrating active listening and remaining courteous at all times. In addition, arbitration plays an important role in the finality of cases, as an arbitrator I help the parties narrow down the issues to a point where resolution may be possible.”

 

One plaintiff attorney stated, “Ann has a down to earth mediation style; during session we appreciated her experience and feedback and most of all her tenacity.”
