Gary J. Friedman

Mr. Friedman has been practicing law as a mediator with Mediation Law Offices in Mill Valley, California since 1976, integrating meditative principles into the practice of law and the resolution of legal disputes. Through the non-profit organization which he co-founded, The Center for Understanding in Conflict (formerly The Center for Mediation in Law), he has been teaching mediation since 1980.

Prior to his work as a mediator, he practiced law as a trial lawyer with Friedman and Friedman in Bridgeport, Connecticut. After several years as an advocate, he sought a new approach to resolving disputes through increasing the participation of the parties in the resolution of their differences.

In l976, he began to develop a model of mediation, the Understanding Based Model of Mediation that is now practiced extensively in the United States and Europe. As one of the first lawyer mediators and a primary force in the current mediation movement, he has used this model to complete over one thousand mediations in the last two decades, including numerous 2-party and multi- party disputes in the commercial and non-profit realms, in the area of intellectual property, real estate, corporate, personnel, partnership formations and dissolutions, and family law. Examples include contractual disputes concerning the supply of power and co-ownership of generation facilities between large public utilities; a dispute with a hospital resulting in a restructuring of the relationship between medical and administrative personnel; an environmental dispute over the use of a nature preserve; a dispute within a major symphony orchestra; a dissolution of a major law firm; an intellectual property dispute between a publisher and author of a series of highly successful books; and a conflict within a religious organization between the head and the residential community.

Through the Center for Mediation in Law, he has trained lawyers, law professors and judges in his method of mediation and a meditative approach to layering and collaborative practice. Since l989, he has been training lawyers, judges and psychotherapists in the United States, Europe, and Israel. He has taught courses in negotiation and mediation at Stanford University Law School and the New College of Law and has lectured frequently at numerous other law schools and has taught at Harvard Law Schools Program on Negotiation and at the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva.

He has written several articles on mediation and conflict resolution and is the author of A GUIDE TO DIVORCE MEDIATION, Workman Publishing, l993. In collaboration with the Harvard Law Schools Program on Negotiation, he is featured as the mediator in an educational video, Saving the Last Dance: Mediation Through Understanding, which applies the Centers model to a highly charged dispute within a non-profit. He is the co-author of the book, CHALLENGING CONFLICT: MEDIATION THROUGH UNDERSTANDING, published by the American Bar Association and Harvards Program on Negotiation, 2008.
