Miles Mediation & Arbitration to Reopen Offices June 1

Miles Mediation & Arbitration announced today a plan to reopen its Atlanta, Savannah, and Charlotte offices on June 1. The firm will continue to provide virtual alternative dispute resolution services through video and audio conferencing.

 

The decision to reopen is in response to increasing client demand to conduct in-person mediations, arbitrations, pre-litigation counseling and special master engagements.

 

“Our goal is to serve the needs of all clients and provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, including our neutrals, staff and visitors.” said Miles Mediation & Arbitration CEO John Miles.
