Mediation and Arbitration
As an advocate for the firm’s clients, Chris Kent has conducted hundreds of mediations and arbitrations. Because of his diverse trial experience in a number of different areas (business litigation, securities, franchise, construction design defect, insurance, personal injury, will contests, trusts, real property, intellectual property, and disputes involving closely-held or family owned businesses), Chris is frequently called upon to act as mediator or arbitrator by other lawyers. Chris has served as a neutral in over 75 cases and currently has appointments to the American Arbitration Association’s Commercial Panel, the Arbitration Service of Portland, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors, and the Multnomah County Circuit Court’s Mandatory Arbitration Panel.
Chris is available to accept private engagements as an arbitrator or mediator.
