Commercial Dispute Solutions

Judith  Meyer

Judith Meyer, Esq. is recognized as one of the country’s leading mediators and arbitrators, is a former litigation partner in a Los Angeles firm, a founder of a boutique litigation firm in Beverly Hills and was one of the founders of Philadelphia JAMS in 2004. Ms. Meyer brings a special skill set to each mediation and a professionalism born of years of trial advocacy and an understanding of why scorched earth litigation does not always serve a client’s interests well.  In mediation, she makes a total commitment to the parties and their counsel to be their negotiation guide through first referral to final resolution.

In arbitration, she works to bring a fast, efficient, and fair process to the parties.  She brings high energy and deep-dive analysis to a process that requires ready grasp of the essential business and legal issues of a dispute and works with the parties to agree upon only truly necessary discovery. 

One area where she is most sought after in mediation is in “high-emotion” business and tort cases where she is known for her ability to “calm” a situation and help the parties focus on a successful resolution.  In arbitration, she produces cleanly written and thorough arbitration awards addressing the questions of fact and law each party raises.  In the last thirty years, she has resolved over 2000 commercial mediations and arbitrations involving:

  • Contract disputes
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Employment and workplace issues
  • Business torts and fraud
  • Personal injury and wrongful death
  • Inheritance disputes and will contests
  • Medical, Legal and Accounting Malpractice
  • Franchisor/franchisee disputes
  • Insurance disputes

Ms. Meyer has served and serves as a mediator or arbitrator on a number of high-profile ADR panels including:

  • The American Arbitration Association’s National, Commercial, Complex Claims, Emergency Relief and Employment Panels
  • The CPR International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution’s National Panel and Employment and Franchise Panels
  • The EEOC Mediation Services Panels in Chicago and New York
  • FINRA
  • National Health Lawyers’ Association Dispute Resolution Panel
  • U.S. International Commerce Commission
  • The USDC for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Arbitration and Mediation Panels
  • Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware Mediation Panel
  • Maryland District Court
  • New Jersey Superior Courts
  • Construction Dispute Resolution Services, LLC
  • Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, Philadelphia Commerce Court and Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania

Ms. Meyer taught Negotiation, Mediation and Arbitration at Cornell University Law School. She has also lectured to students on mediation at the University of Pennsylvania, Villanova, Dickinson, Temple, and Rutgers Law School. Ms. Meyer is consistently named in Best Lawyers in America in the field of ADR and as a Pennsylvania SuperLawyer in ADR. She received the Sir Francis Bacon Award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association in 2016 for excellence in mediation.  A graduate of Barnard College, she received her law degree from Cornell University Law School, where she won the E. E. Carey Award for Legal Brief Writing Excellence, and served on the Moot Court Board.
