New Era Neutrals

OUR mediators and arbitrators

Unrivaled Arbitrators & Mediators

New Era is dedicated to selecting tenured mediators and arbitrators with extensive legal experience and strong business acumen. Our Neutrals undergo rigorous vetting, including multiple interview rounds,  to ensure they bring a tech-forward and innovative approach to dispute resolution, balancing fairness and efficiency. 

With a minimum of 15 years of experience, our over 200 world-class Neutrals serve on curated industry panels, including Consumer Warranty, Sports including the Olympics, Employment, Staffing, Mergers & Acquisitions, and more.   Our white glove-neutral matching services connect parties directly with a diverse panel of Neutrals for consideration during rank & strike, ensuring a tailored approach based on the claims at issue in each case. 

All Neutrals receive continuous training on the New Era platform, as well as our Rules & Procedures. This continuous education ensures parties are shepherded through procedure to fully realize the efficiency benefits of ADR.  


Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in ADR

We strongly believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion principles are central to the products and services we provide. Products are more inclusive when built by diverse teams with a wide range of experiences and abilities. Mediations and arbitrations are more effective, and decisions and resolutions are more equitable when parties can seek out neutrals who’ve lived, appreciate, and empathize with the broad and varied experiences and viewpoints of the parties before them. 

New Era ADR will always provide a diverse panel of neutrals for parties to consider in every case that’s filed on our platform. We are also committed to finding the next generation of neutrals who reflect the diverse communities and organizations we serve. Contact us if you are interested in joining our panel or assisting in these efforts.
