A Champion of Conflict Resolution
N. Damali Peterman, a former Corporate associate in our New York office, fully embodies the Weil entrepreneurial ethos. She is the Founder and CEO of Breakthrough ADR, a global conflict resolution firm that helps organizations resolve conflict in everyday situations. She recently joined JAMS, the world’s largest alternative dispute resolution organization, as a mediator, arbitrator and ombudsperson – and as one of the youngest people ever invited to become a member of the prestigious panel. A true trailblazer, Damali has been featured frequently in the media and recently was interviewed by Forbes magazine.
In this month’s edition of the Weil Alumni Interview Series, Damali spoke with Charan Sandhu, a partner in our Technology & IP Transactions practice. Damali explained why she is so passionate about conflict resolution, why her unique career path makes her a “unicorn” in the industry and how her wide international experience has enabled her to navigate the cultural differences that so often must be bridged to successfully resolve disputes.
The Weil Alumni Interview Series has recently featured videos on our alumni’s successes, well-being, and search tips for in-house legal positions. View these videos on Weil’s YouTube channel.
