Meet The Experts

Russ Bleemer edits CPR’s monthly newsletter on business conflict resolution, Alternatives, produced by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution and Jossey-Bass, a unit of John Wiley & Sons.

He reports on practices and issues of concern to business, law firms, government, and the courts. He has analyzed the conflict resolution implications of a wide variety of legal world events and trends, including the ADR aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, business issues faced by ADR providers, and changing disclosure requirements for law firms and neutrals practitioners.

He also is editor of “Mediation: Approaches & Insights” (Juris Publishing 2005).

He and Alternatives have received 12 national awards for newsletter writing and reporting since 2005 from the ASBPE, the Specialized Information Publishers Foundation, the Society of National Association Publications, and the Apex Awards for Publication Excellence.

Mr. Bleemer is longtime Program Coordinator of Monday Night Law, a free legal clinic at the New York City Bar Association, which provides advice to more than 1,000 needy New Yorkers annually. He recruits and oversees training for about 150 volunteers, and was part of the group that started the program in 1991. He is the former chair and former secretary of the bar committee that sponsors the program, the Committee for Legal Services for Persons of Moderate Means.

For his pro bono work, he was a 2012 recipient of the association’s Jeremy G. Epstein Award for Outstanding Pro Bono Service, and shares with the program the 2015 Angelo T. Cometa Award, given by the Committee on Lawyer Referral Service of the New York State Bar Association.

Mr. Bleemer is an honors graduate of the George Washington Law School in Washington, D.C., and Marietta College, in Marietta, Ohio
