This is a new interview of Bruce Edwards by Mediate.com's Managing Editor, Dr. Clare Fowler. Mr. Edwards discusses the growth in the field of mediation generally and the growth of mediation in India specifically.
Bruce Edwards was one of the pioneers in developing mediation as a tool for resolving commercial disputes. A professional mediator since 1985, Bruce has helped mediation gain widespread acceptance in the United States legal system as an alternative to often costly and time-consuming litigation.
A graduate of UC Hastings College of the Law in 1981, Bruce became a partner in the international San Francisco litigation firm then known as Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold, LLP. After being introduced to the power of mediation in 1985, it soon became the focus of his practice. Through mediation, he has brought the principles of psychology and therapeutic science to a world of traditional dispute resolution, judicial settlement conferences and trials.
