Patrick C. Coughlan is one of the most experienced and successful mediators in the country and one of the few with substantial catastrophic case and mass tort experience. In 1987, he was a leader in developing an ADR process which offered a viable alternative to the court system, and he has worked exclusively as a mediator and arbitrator since that time. He is skilled at bringing people with divergent points of view together without playing favorites. Patrick Coughlan has mediated over twenty five hundred cases and is one of the few mediators who is asked to travel throughout the U.S. and Canada to help settle complex and difficult disputes.

Since one of the most important considerations in successfully resolving disputes is the selection of the mediator, experience, ability to settle cases, and training count heavily when weighing the chances for success. Pat is unusually successful in obtaining settlements, resolving matters in over 95% of the cases that he mediates. His client list is a Who's Who of law firms, insurance companies, and Fortune 1000 Corporations. Patrick Coughlan travels throughout the United States in his work. Pat has mediated and successfully settled some of the most difficult and challenging cases in the country.
