Arbitration

Ward Greenberg Heller & Reidy is an excellent litigation boutique that specializes in medical malpractice representing hospitals and is also skilled in contract disputes. I mediated a case last year in which two of the attorneys from that firm represented an insured against a life insurer. The amount in controversy was substantial and the facts tended to favor the insurer. The WG attorneys were better prepared than the insurer's attorneys by a substantial degree, and as a result, the insurer paid a significant amount to settle. WG partner Harold Kurland is also a very effective mediator and a well-regarded trial lawyer."
