I use Met Wilson as a mediator because he will quickly determine the obstacles to settlement and help the parties figure out a solution, if there is one, and not waste our time if there isn’t.
A Record That Speaks For Itself
I have used Met as a mediator and have served on arbitration panels with him. As a mediator his tenacity, experience and keen intelligence make him effective. As an arbitrator his strong work ethic and sound judgment ensure that the arbitration panel focuses on what is important. When Met is the arbitrator the parties know that they will be treated fairly and with respect.
Met brings in-depth practice experience to the table. Because of his background, he quickly understands the business issues and can come up with creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems. I highly recommend him.
