Description of Practice

Recognizing the burdens and costs involved in protracted litigation, Mr. Botterud, early in his career, came to value alternative forms of dispute resolution. After receiving specialized training from The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University in 2006, Mr. Botterud started working as a mediator to serve his colleagues in efforts to seek resolution of conflict. Mr. Botterud has served as a neutral in over seventy mediations involving employment, construction, contract, disability and general civil disputes, and shortly garnered a sterling reputation as a calm, no-nonsense and compelling mediator who can successfully resolve even the most hotly contested matters. Dedicated to public service, Mr. Botterud previously served on the Los Angeles County Superior Court Pro Bono and Select Mediator Panels.

Since graduating from Whittier Law School in 1992, Mr. Botterud has represented hundreds of corporate and individual clients in all phases of complex employment, business and criminal matters in state and federal court. With more than thirty years experience as a lawyer and business executive, Mr. Botterud has litigated extensively on behalf of his clients at all levels.

Most recently, from 2010 to 2013, Mr. Botterud served as General Counsel at Occidental College. During that tenure he successfully guided the College through a novel tax litigation matter that resulted in significant savings for his client, an NCAA investigation, several major construction related challenges, contract disputes, and various civil rights and employment matters.
