About Judge Kenneth L. Fields (Ret.)

He is the presiding commissioner for a five-person arbitration commission deciding disputes between the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe (Native American tribes).
In 2020 Judge Fields (Ret.) began conducting both mediations and arbitrations via video conferencing. During the COVID-19 crisis, video conferencing with Judge Fields (Ret.) will allow continued representation of clients and the ability to resolve disputes without having to have a face-to-face meeting in a mediation or arbitration.

Thank you for your good work on this mediation. I want to also pass along my client’s appreciation. We were hesitant to mediate and had little expectation that the Defense would settle. But, my client was very impressed with your approach and repeatedly expressed his appreciation for your professionalism and demeanor throughout the mediation.
I have had the distinct pleasure and honor of with working Judge Fields on many international and intercultural trainings. His ability to grasp complicated concepts is keen; his skills to interact with others is not only unusually patient and understanding, but remarkably insightful as well. He is in all respects a truly international colleague for whom I have the greatest respect.
I have known Ken for a few years now and I have always appreciated his composure, kindness and straightforward approach to things. I also shadowed and co-mediated with him several US-based mediations. He is a well-experienced commercial mediator: very knowledgeable with regard to the legal consequences of a dispute – he conducts amazing reality checks – and he deals with the counsels and the parties in an impartial, independent and neutral way. His familiarity with technology and digital platforms used for ODR stands out in comparison with average ADR professionals.
Thank you, Judge Fields, for your expertise in turning a difficult issue into an agreeable solution.
