New York, NY (April 30, 2021) – NAM  (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation's leading providers of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services, is pleased to announce that NAM's Chief Commercial Officer and neutral, James J. Wrynn, Esq., has been invited to speak at the Atlanta Bar Association's Dispute Resolution Section. The virtual meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 5th beginning at 8:30 a.m. EST.

Mr. Wrynn will introduce attendees to NAM and how Alternative Dispute Resolution is an effective means to resolve disputes. He will also address the kinds of disputes that are good choices for ADR, how the pandemic has severely limited court operations and how NAM has filled that void. He will also delve into how NAM successfully pivoted from in-person hearings to virtual ones and how parties and counsel are finding it quicker and more cost-effective.

Mr. Wrynn will also present how a major benefit of ADR is that the process is flexible – parties have the freedom to choose their own Arbitrator/Mediator with the requisite subject matter experience and can choose the procedural and discovery rules that may apply to their dispute.  The procedure is much quicker than litigation, is significantly less expensive, is confidential, allows all parties to be heard, and is more likely to preserve existing relationships (business and/or social).
