About Central Mass Mediation & Arbitration

Central Mass Mediation & Arbitration

CMMA, a multi-service dispute resolution and negotiation firm providing in-person, virtual and hybrid mediations and arbitrations, also handles organizational matters, whether they involve tensions within an organization or negotiations between organizations.

Many of the matters we handle involve parties represented by counsel, but we also routinely work with parties and organizations without the involvement of counsel. We have a strong presence in Massachusetts, yet we serve in both cross-jurisdictional and international dispute resolution matters.

Our panel of nine neutrals includes experienced attorneys, business professionals, and a retired Superior Court judge with expertise to help resolve everything from complex commercial and business disputes to catastrophic personal injury cases, employment, construction, professional liability, intellectual property, environmental, family/divorce matters, governmental contracts, real estate, commercial landlord/tenant matters and probate disputes. Our practitioners have also facilitated sensitive business “divorces,” discussions within organizations, and have served as neutrals between organizations wishing to negotiate joint ventures.

At CMMA, we appreciate the time, expense, uncertainty, and the emotional costs associated with the negotiation, dispute, litigation and even some ADR processes. Which is why we pride ourselves on being cost efficient and nimble when it comes to scheduling dispute resolution sessions. All CMMA Neutrals share common traits: their humanity, creativity, ability to navigate difficult relationship dynamics, and steadfast desire to help people. We derive immense satisfaction from helping individuals and organizations resolve disputes.
