RESOLUTION SERVICES of Harvey M. Sheldon
Mr. Sheldon is available for mediation or arbitration of disputes, for fact-finding or evaluative assignments, for facilitation or consensus building, and for hearing officer services as a designated neutral. He offers mediation and other dispute resolution and facilitation services for environmental, toxic tort and other public policy problems and issues, as well as for business relationships, land use, real estate and energy matters.
Mr. Sheldon’s extensive experience helps him assist disputing parties sort through issues and identify means and bases for resolution that avoid the high cost of litigation. Given his in depth appreciation of environmental law, he is often called on in mediations where parties are looking for an active mediator, rather than a simple messenger of questions, information and offers. Mr. Sheldon has successfully mediated multi-party cases, including class action toxic tort claims, CERCLA and RCRA claims, insurance issues, and common law claims. He has had settlement success in tough cases as a trial approaches where parties are unable to find the path to settlement.
Mr. Sheldon is on the panel of approved Law Division and Chancery Division mediators for the Circuit Court of Cook County. He also has been involved as a neutral professional in landfill siting cases, coal mine safety cases, Superfund cases, and regulatory development hearings. He has been active in a number of liability allocation proceedings among parties potentially responsible for site contamination and has helped design agreements for multi-party Superfund case management.
Mr. Sheldon is a member of the Association for Conflict Resolution and of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee of the American Bar Association. He holds a Certificate in Mediation from DePaul University, Chicago.
