BIOGRAPHICAL:

William E. Hartgering, Esq., a full-time mediator and arbitrator since transitioning from a litigation practice, established the Chicago ENDISPUTE office in 1982 which merged with JAMS in 1994. His experience includes the resolution of well over 1,000 complex matters arising in 50 states and foreign countries, appointments by federal and state judges in 10 states, co-mediations with a sitting federal judge and a variety of experts, panel arbitrations with former judges, as well as training for state, federal, and foreign governments in Asia and Europe.

Over the last 30 years, counsel and their clients attribute Bill's success with particularly difficult issues to an “unusual mix of skills and style: he is intelligent yet very engaging, patient yet tenaciously persistent, and has the ability to be creative, facilitative as well as an effective evaluator.” “Bill has the following in abundance: humor, infectious outward optimism in the face of difficult obstacles, tirelessness in trying to make the mediation succeed, as well as objectivity.”
