Consulting & casework
Reviewing the Projects and Publications pages, you might be forgiven for assuming that we have spent all our time working on major issues and writing about them. Not so. Chris's background includes a great deal of "bread-and-butter" case work over many years, including hundreds of mediation cases, hundreds of arbitrations, and enough administrative-law-judge, investigator and other neutral assignments that his total easily exceeds two thousand cases as a neutral. Chris has also been retained as a consultant for more "normal" assignments (examples below) than the Hewlett Foundation- or World Bank-originated work noted on some of the other pages. On a larger but still practice-oriented scale, for four years he served as lead outside consultant for ADR Center (Rome), the largest dispute resolution firm in continental Europe. His work for ADR Center focused on design and setup of multinational EU- and World Bank-financed projects in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean.

Similarly, Elaine's national projects, publications and other roles might easily leave obscure a great deal of her work which operated at a single-state, county or city level. A selection of examples is under preparation. In the meantime, you can get an idea from her Publications list.
