Mediation – Arbitration
Christine Masters and Alan Ribakoff established Masters & Ribakoff in 1991 by merging their highly successful employment and corporate law practices. By 2004, they were recognized leaders in providing high quality ADR services exclusively as neutral mediators, arbitrators, and investigators. With a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience in employment, corporate and business law that is difficult to match, they have successfully resolved thousands of disputes involving public employers, private business enterprises from small family owned to large Fortune 500 companies, and non-profit and governmental entities, including local municipalities and state agencies.
Mr. Ribakoff now concentrates his practice as an arbitrator on the Employment and Commercial Panels of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Ms. Masters devotes the majority of her time to the mediated resolution of all types of employment disputes. Mr. Ribakoff and Ms. Masters choose to work primarily in Southern California, but will consider assignments elsewhere upon request.
Going Forward in COVID times
As we have since March 2020, Masters & Ribakoff has determined that we will continue resolving disputes through secure Zoom video conferencing, with our same high standards of service, while offering the possibility of an in person mediation after Labor Day 2021 on a case-by-case basis. We will of course be monitoring all health and safety data and developments and look forward resuming in person services. In the meantime, we are happy to provide our services virtually, working with you to successfully resolve conflicts.
