Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
Mediator Ross Hart is the recipient of the prestigious 2013 Legend of an Era Award presented at the 2013 West Coast Casualty Construction Defect Seminar attended by more than 1600 lawyers, claims professionals and forensic experts. The annual Legend of an Era Award recognizes an individual in the construction defect community whose contributions and work influence others to the overall benefit and betterment of the CD community.
Hart stated: “I am deeply honored to have received the Legend of an Era Award from West Coast Casualty. My job as mediator of complex construction, insurance coverage and construction defect disputes is both challenging and rewarding. It means everything to be recognized by the construction defect community for the service I have provided over the last twenty years. While there is always zealous advocacy among the participants in these disputes, the annual West Coast Casualty seminar and the continuing education it provides has helped to foster great respect, civility, professionalism and collegiality among counsel and the carriers. I believe these relationships, developed over the years, help to get most CD disputes resolved far less expensively and far more efficiently than would otherwise be the case all to the benefit of those paying the freight. I look forward to upholding the values this Award represents.”
Mr. Hart works as a mediator throughout the Western states. He is on the panel of neutrals for AMCC, a dispute resolution provider to the construction, insurance and real estate industries.
“It came as no surprise that Ross received this prestigious Award,” said AMCC President, Karen Smith. “He is so very well regarded by his peers. In his long and exemplary career as a mediator, he has earned the trust and confidence of those tasked with advocating in complex and challenging disputes, allowing Ross to craft honest and comprehensive resolutions. He possesses the rare combination of exceptional intelligence mixed with sincere determination, which translates into successful settlements. It is a great source of pride for me to work with him.”
Along with the recognition of the Legend of an Era award is a donation in Ross Hart's name to the Construction Defect Community Charitable Foundation.
