ANYWHERE. INCLUDING ONLINE.
Paul mediates and arbitrates anywhere convenient for parties and counsel, including online.
Most in person mediations and arbitrations are held away from Paul's Austin base.
Paul is fully trained and experienced in conducting mediation and arbitration proceedings online. Give Paul a call to discuss whether this option is best for your dispute. Paul uses the Zoom platform, but if the parties prefer a different online platform, Paul is agreeable as long as it provides the security and mediation-friendly tools necessary for a successful session. Please also see Paul's Online Mediation Protocol on the Mediation tab.
Most disputes Paul deals with have no connection to his hometown, but sometimes parties select it as a neutral location. If a location is not otherwise agreed to, Paul uses offices convenient to the CBD and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Austin has non-stop air service from over 50 cities in US, Mexico, Mexico, UK, and Europe. It is world-renowned for live music, technology, restaurants.
Some prefer one of Texas' other major cities--not just for disputes there, but also for ones pending anywhere. Geographically scattered participants often prefer the easy access afforded by Houston or Dallas airline hubs. Where parties can't agree on a location, Paul has access to top mediation and arbitration facilities in both cities, as well as elsewhere in the state.
Paul mediates and arbitrates in any city the United States agreed upon by counsel. He has mediated in thirteen states (with multiple mediations in TX, NY, CA, IL, MN and GA) and arbitrated in three states (with multiple in NY and TX). Where a location is not agreed to by the parties, mediation and arbitration facilities are easily booked by Paul, if needed, in most major cities.
For mediations and arbitrations in locations outside the United States, Paul relies on counsel to select and agreed to a specific site for the proceeding.
