About my services
I can conduct mediations and arbitrations, and can also represent people and companies at them
Experience and qualifications
Commercial lawyer: I am a Victorian solicitor, having continuously practiced in Melbourne since 1982. My main areas of work are in commercial litigation and related commercial matters, acting for individuals and small businesses.
Mediator: I am an accredited Mediator, registered under the National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS). Please see my website www.dovsilberman.biz I have also developed a method of mediation – Worldview Mediation™ and Silver Lining Mediation™ – which takes into account several factors not usually considered in classical mediation scenarios.
Arbitrator: I am a Graded Arbitrator with the Resolution Institute (formerly LEADR/IAMA). I obtained my Professional Certificate in Arbitration with High Distinction from the University of Adelaide. I have also developed a unique form of community arbitration, initially to be used within the Jewish community, with a complete set of Rules to ensure arbitration awards are compatible with Part 8 of the Commercial Arbitration Act 2011 (Victoria) – Recognition and Enforcement of Awards. Please see my other website www.jewisharbitration.com and specifically this page on my Jewish Arbitration website for information about arbitration generally.
