Founded in 1979, JAMS is the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution services. With Resolution Centers worldwide, JAMS and its nearly 350 full-time mediators and arbitrators, are responsible for resolving the world's most important cases. JAMS panelists resolve multi-party, complex cases in virtually all areas of the law. JAMS handles an average of 12,000 cases per year in hearing locations throughout the world. Based on past results, JAMS takes pride that almost all of its cases, even the most complex ones, are successfully resolved.
For attorneys looking for a fast, cost-effective ADR process, JAMS offers panelists as general, special or discovery referees, or as temporary judges. JAMS referees devise and manage discovery plans and supervise ongoing issues, including monitoring depositions and resolving discovery disputes. As temporary judges appointed under all-purpose references, JAMS neutrals handle all aspects of a case, from pre-trial rulings to full bench trials. Under consensual references, they act as liaisons between the parties and the court and apply their expertise to a wide range of discrete issues.
JAMS has decades of experience in successfully administering and resolving large, complex disputes as well as an extensive track record of handling post-settlement matters, including many of the largest civil class action settlements in U.S. history. That depth of experience--combined with the respect of courts, attorneys, government agencies and claims administrators--makes JAMS uniquely qualified to coordinate the entire resolution process.
