Chapter Summary

The American Arbitration Association (AAA) began a program years ago in which a case manager would call the lawyers for the parties in new arbitrations and then suggest mediation. In 1992, Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) sought expansion beyond California and merged with an ADR company on the East Coast named Endispute. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), in February 2007, hosted its Second Annual International Mediation Competition in Paris. The largest mediation provider in the world, probably by a factor of ten or more, is JAMS. JAMS counts over 10,000 case filings a year and 70 percent of its revenue comes from mediation. The mediation alternative will only get more popular as more mediators acquire the facilitative skills and experience needed in this process, and as more companies have their own success stories to tell.
