PITTSBURGH, PA – January 28, 2020 – Leech Tishman is pleased to announce that attorneys Kimberly J. Kisner and Ryan D. DeMotte have recently completed mediation training and are available to serve as neutral mediators in a broad range of civil and commercial disputes. Both Kim and Ryan are listed on the mediation panel for the Alternative Dispute Resolution program for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Kim is an experienced employment, real estate and business attorney. She is available to mediate employment, family business, and real estate disputes in state and federal courts. Ryan has substantial experience in commercial litigation and construction. He will focus his mediation practice on commercial, construction, and employment disputes in state and federal courts.
Both Kim and Ryan are members of Leech Tishman’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Practice Group led by Sally Griffith Cimini, a leader in Pittsburgh’s mediation and ADR community. “ADR is increasingly being used as a means of resolving disputes. Our Leech Tishman ADR Professionals are happy to serve as mediators, and also to assist clients as mediation advocates.”
Leech Tishman’s ADR group assists clients in resolving disputes through conflict resolution processes that provide alternatives to traditional federal and state court judicial and jury proceedings. The firm’s ADR attorneys serve as professional neutrals (mediators, arbitrators and early neutral evaluators) and counsel the firm’s clients as skilled ADR advocates in all forms of these dispute resolution processes. The ADR group is engaged in designing, training and implementing internal conflict resolutions processes for employers and organizations, and assisting in resolving conflict between employees, executives, business partners and shareholders, and corporate entities.
“Certain civil disputes can greatly benefit from the alternative dispute resolution process, which gives parties more flexibility to shape the dispute resolution process and outcome. We are pleased that Ryan and Kim will be able to serve the court and litigants in this capacity,” said Pete Fuscaldo, managing partner of Leech Tishman.
