I’ve been involved in all kinds of business planning challenges and disputes across a broad spectrum of industries, and I’ve learnedyou have to ask a lot of in-depth questions to understand the business context and the motivations of the parties involved.

A lifelong lawyer for small- to medium-sized businesses and individuals, Philip L. Chapman is truly a “primary care business lawyer”. He concentrates in a wide range of fields including business, civil, commercial, contract, corporate and real estate law and is a court approved mediator. To take his practice further, as well as to expand his online profile, Phil has announced his membership in Mediation.com, a premium network of attorney-mediators.

Said Phil: “I’ve been involved in all kinds of business planning challenges and disputes across a broad spectrum of industries, and I’ve learned, among other things, that whether as counselor or mediator, you have to ask a lot of in-depth questions to understand the business context and the motivations of the parties involved; you have to be a very good listener, and in most disputes, mediation can be extremely useful in helping the parties to reach a settlement. In fact, I advise clients that their agreements should have a special provision requiring non-binding mediation before litigation.”

Phil’s understanding of business context and how businesses operate enables him, as a mediator, to suggest forms of settlement that involve more than the payment of monies, such as a re-working of the relationship of the parties; and he believes that in this respect, he brings more to mediation than do most retired judges.

A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, Phil has been rated AV – the highest rating for an attorney – in the Martindale-Hubbell legal directory for 31 years straight, and has been named a New Jersey “Super Lawyer” for seven years straight by the by Thomson Reuters’s legal division. He is an in-demand speaker, lecturer and author of federal legislation and books on legal issues that apply to small- and medium-sized businesses in New Jersey.
