PITTSBURGH, January 24, 2023 – Tucker Arensberg attorney Jeremy V. Farrell earned certification for mediation, joining his other colleagues who handle arbitrations, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution matters in Tucker Arensberg’s Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) Group.
Jeremy completed 40 hours of training through The Conflict Lab and Behrend Mediation Services to earn the certification. He is now also an approved mediator on the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania’s ADR Panel, where he plans to focus on mediating disputes that arise out of the employment relationship—such as those involving allegations of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and violation of wage and hour laws. Jeremy has also served as a pro bono mediator for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Mediation is an essential aspect of resolving legal conflicts outside the courtroom, and Mr. Farrell’s commitment to achieving positive outcomes through alternative dispute resolution further solidifies his reputation as a leading legal practitioner. “Adversarial litigation is the default process that the law gives us to resolve disputes, but it’s a long and costly one that doesn’t make sense in all cases.” Farrell said. “As a mediator, I enjoy having the chance to help parties work informally to resolve disputes on their own terms.”
This mediation certification reflects Jeremy’s proficiency in facilitating open communication and negotiation between parties to reach mutually agreeable solutions. This additional credential underscores his dedication to providing comprehensive legal services and expanding the firm’s capabilities in resolving disputes effectively. Mediation benefits employers by providing a cost-effective and time-efficient alternative to litigation, fostering open communication and collaboration for quicker dispute resolution. The process allows for greater control over outcomes, preserving relationships and confidentiality, while offering flexibility and informality.
