Founding Coordinator of the Bangalore Mediation Centre (BMC), the a premier Court Annexed Mediation Program of the High Court of Karnataka. Routinely train lawyers and educate community and business leaders on the effectiveness of collaborative dispute resolution. Presented in several conferences and seminars, nationally and internationally. Co-mediated sensitive cases with former Judges of the Supreme Court of India.
As appropriate, I utilize both facilitative and evaluative skills to help parties reach an informed and voluntary agreement. Lawyers are an integral part of the mediation.
I facilitate the process through convening, understanding perspectives, gathering information, identifying interests, creating options, case evaluation, reality checking and brain storming.
I am fully invested in my mediation - when I mediate, the case continues to be on my mind until it resolves.

Commercial Disputes –Breach of contract, sub-contract, vendor, founder, IT , transfer of business, partnership, cross border, consumer, intellectual property
