Arbitrator

Deborah arbitrates large and small disputes, including international cases. 

She is a proactive manager of the arbitration process, working to assure efficiency and fairness in the preparatory phase,  the hearing and the award.

Deborah offers arbitration services as a member of the Large Complex Case, Technology and Commercial Panels of the American Arbitration Association, as a member of the Panel of Distinguished Neutrals of the CPR International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution, and privately. 

When Deborah is engaged as an arbitrator, the parties benefit from her insight, her clarity, and her deep experience as an advocate, a counselor and a neutral.  For nearly four decades, she represented parties in complex commercial litigation.  Deborah's work as a lawyer and a neutral has exposed her to challenges faced by businesses in many industry sectors, including manufacturing, mining, wholesale distribution, franchising, food and beverage, construction, real estate, banking and finance, insurance, publishing, software development, sports, entertainment, and energy. 

Deborah is a Fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators.  She has been repeatedly recognized for her work as an arbitrator by Best Lawyers in America and Ohio Super Lawyers.
