Build Expo Educator Jim Groton

 

  • Retired partner of the law firm of Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan LLP, where he formerly led the Construction Practice Group and the Dispute Prevention and Resolution practice of that firm.

    Jim has participated in virtually every kind of ADR process.  Principal area of interest: pre-dispute "relationship" processes which proactively prevent, de-escalate, and, when necessary, provide "real time" resolution of disputes (e.g., realistic allocation of risks, partnering, incentives to encourage cooperation, step negotiations).  Special emphasis on dispute review boards and standing neutrals -- the most cost-effective, relationship saving, and time saving of all dispute prevention and resolution processes. 

    Active in the work of the Construction Industry Institute (CII), International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), American Arbitration Association (AAA), International Association for Commercial and Contract Management (IACCM), and European Proactive ThinkTank (PATT).  Former President of the American College of Construction Lawyers.  Recipient of many awards and honors for his construction and dispute resolution work, including election to the National Academy of Construction.
