Introducing Frank Burke Mediation and Arbitration PC
Yesterday I announced my new business, which better reflects my evolving practice balance between mediation and arbitration matters. I am now practicing as an independent ADR neutral on ad hoc mediation and arbitration matters in addition to my work with the American Arbitration Association mediation and arbitration panels, where I serve on its’ National Rosters of Arbitrators and Mediators for Commercial, Large Complex Case and Energy Disputes. I actively handle mediation and arbitration matters in person in San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Sacramento and on Zoom throughout California and internationally.
There are aspects of this new business that I find very exciting. On my ad hoc matters, I feel closer to my clients as I do my own convening, scheduling and billing and charge no administrative fees and I am happy to discuss your matters in advance while you are selecting a neutral. I accept payments by check, ACH transfer and online credit or debit card or e-check. My main office is located at 201 Spear Street, Suite 1100, San Francisco CA 94105. Through my landlord.
