Kendall C Reed, Esq., LL.M., IMI, C.Arb,
Mediator, Arbitrator, and Dispute Resolution Consultant
I have mediated many hundreds of cases since 1997 in a wide variety of substantive legal areas, including business-to-business disputes, partnership disputes, personal injury cases, insurance coverage disputes, employment disputes, and family law matters. I have been an arbitrator since 2004 and have conducted many hundreds of arbitrations as panel chair.
I am certified as a mediator by the International Mediation Institute (The Hague) and as a Chartered Arbitrator by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (London). I earned my Master of Laws degree (dispute resolution studies) from the Pepperdine University School of Law in 2004, and I earned my Jurist Doctor degree from the University of Southern California School of Law in 1983.
I am currently a Co-Chair of the Association for Conflict Resolution Commercial Section and a Co-Chair of the California Bar Association Litigation Section ADR Committee. I am a past president of the Southern California Mediation Association.
I have been an attorney for 30 years. I began my career as a litigator in the insurance defence field. I have been an In-house Counsel and General Counsel for international corporations, and I have been the Director of Intellectual Property for the North American operations of a large Japanese manufacturing corporation.
I am a frequent speaker and author on dispute resolution topics.
