    Name mediation

    If you are having a problem with someone squatting on names that you feel you have a legitamate right to or are being accused of cybersquatting, we should talk. I have successfully argued both sides and a cash settlement is what we shoot for. I am not a lawyer but have mediated many of these cases and may consider taking yours on if you have a strong case.

    Thank you.

    it reads to me like "professional negotiator" - no bad thing imo.
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    Its all about results.

    Although I am not disputing the meaningfull contribution that our esteemed learned men make to society in general, I am of the opinion that it is in the best interest of lawyers to propogate disagreements as opposed to solving them. I would much rather have someone working for me that knows the industry and has a vested interest in resolving the situation rather than someone who gets paid on an hourly basis and has only one parties interest at heart. It is not to say that lawyers are all bad, selfish people but if you can point me to one that is willing to work on domain disputes on a contingency basis, I will gladly point my clientelle his way.

    The most recent was involving a construction company and a person who had bought several variations of their name. He did this because he wis not satisfied with the work the company had done in his home and he wanted to display some of the perceived inadequacies to the world. Although I am not at liberty to share details of the case, there had been discussions between lawyers for over a year previous to my involvement. Within 5 weeks the names were back in the hands of the construction company, the individual had a signed indemnity agreement and financial compensation well in excess of the value of the domain names and the file was closed. Both parties achieved in 5 weeks what they could not achieve on their own in over a year.

    It's not that I am some super human being, it is just that you need to have the right people with the right motivation to resolve an otherwise stalemate. It is the same reason we have real estate agencies. People are often too close to the problem or feel personally slighted by some action the other party has taken. When you bring in a neutral third party who only gets paid upon a satisfactory resolution to the problem, there is a buffer between two otherwise adversaries.
