I am a full-time independent dispute resolution neutral.  Most of my cases come from lawyers and clients against whom I litigated in my prior career as a commercial litigator.  Although based in Boston, in the last year I have had mediation assignments in California, North Carolina, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Minnesota and Texas.  I am available for international assignments.

Arthur has mediated more than 200 commercial matters, including multi-party matters, intellectual property claims, trademark infringement, partnership claims, lawyer/client disputes, consumer and unfair trade practice claims, fraud claims, franchise, distributor and dealer claims, franchise association claims, business valuation disputes, franchisee claims against other franchisees, multi-party claims against franchisors, employment and misclassification class action claims, claims by franchisees arising from franchise system restructuring, international franchise agreement termination and non-renewal claims.
