JAMS ADR Blog by Chris Poole
In fall of 2020, Laura Abrahamson, Esq., FCIArb, transitioned from her role as in-house counsel at a large company, where she led a corporate litigation group, to being an arbitrator and mediator with JAMS. Laura uses her perspective as a former corporate attorney to inform her approach to alternative dispute resolution, helping her clients reach efficient, pragmatic, and cost-effective solutions.
In this Corporate Counsel Business Journal Perspectives podcast, Laura speaks with host, Kristin Calve, about what drew her to JAMS, how she draws on her in-house experience as a JAMS neutral, and how in-house counsel can benefit from ADR solutions. Encouraging in-house counsel to be thoughtful when drafting contracts and including ADR clauses, Laura highlights how a well-crafted clause can be essential for an organization in achieving fair, resource-efficient outcomes, especially as courts continue to face backlogs.
