Geri S. Krauss practices as both a neutral or an advocate

Negotiate. Mediate. Arbitrate. Litigate.
Geri’s expertise is rooted in her experience working with companies, executives, and partners as either a neutral or advocate. Using her practical knowledge, intellectual resourcefulness and legal acumen, she works with her clients to find the best strategy to achieve each client’s specific goals. She always seeks to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible. Her experience in all the different dispute resolution forums gives her the ability to offer clients alternatives which may reduce the time, money and angst often associated with protracted litigation.
