Closing Observation

Arbitration practice offers a fresh perspective on our legal system. The work of a neutral decision-maker brings with it renewed commitment to resolving disputes in accordance with law, through rules-based processes that fully and fairly test the facts and arguments on which responsible judgments are made.

This is a commitment to law that allows contending interests to formulate their positions, premised as James Madison wrote on a policy of empowering “opposite and rival interests.” As a longtime advocate in hard-fought legal controversies, I understand and respect that process.

Madison urged adoption of a Constitution predicated on political separation of powers, a “reflection on human nature.” Our civil and commercial justice systems likewise depend on courts and arbitral forums that reliably enable each side to present their best cases under the applicable law for thoughtful and even-handed consideration. As an arbitrator, I am committed to serving that goal.
