Our Featured Presenter

Brandon Peters has successfully mediated complex disputes involving nearly 500 parties. He enjoys the challenge of cases in which one or more participants are considered “difficult” by their opponents.

He brings more than two decades of experience as a highly respected civil litigator to his mediation practice. As an attorney, his clients included numerous well-known lawyers and judges. During mediation, Brandon usually avoids the “soft approach” because he knows it is critical to identify weaknesses and tell each party the truth – even when the truth is unpleasant.

Only then can the parties negotiate from the same script with a realistic view of their relative risks and a working awareness of the full spectrum of possible outcomes.
