Health Care Practice

Extensive Industry Knowledge & Efficient, Affordable ADR

The JAMS Health Care Practice Group includes retired federal, state and appellate judges and former litigators who have established credibility in health care law and the health care industry. JAMS neutrals resolve cases quickly, providing significant savings of time and expense and often preserving valuable business relationships. JAMS offers skilled, efficient case management, custom rules and affordable options for health care matters of every size and type.

JAMS neutrals collaborate with all parties to design flexible, individualized ADR approaches. They take an active role in pre-hearing preparation and case administration. They serve as mediators and arbitrators, perform medical peer reviews and frequently act as hearing officers in hospital disputes. In cases that are legally and factually complex, courts often appoint JAMS neutrals as special masters or referees to assist with eDiscovery and other issues involving electronic health records and to design efficient settlement formats in multiparty disputes.
