Under the leadership of Geoff Drucker, former Chief Counsel for Dispute Resolution and Prevention, U.S. Postal Service, The McCammon Group is offering facilitation, training, mediation, and arbitration services to federal agencies. The General Services Administration recently awarded the Group a contract on its Worldwide Federal Supply Schedule (GSA Advantage).
Mr. Drucker said one of the most difficult parts of his job at the Postal Service was locating ADR providers with the skills and experience needed to facilitate and mediate complex matters. “I relied on a small circle of contacts with whom I was well acquainted. Many people in the federal government don’t have that kind of network, so they need a supplier they can trust.” Mr. Drucker added: “Federal officials are smart: they know that having a bad mediator, facilitator, or trainer is worse than doing without one. So the more confident they can be in their choice of a professional, the more they are going to use ADR”
The cadre of professionals available to federal agencies includes:
Former Judge, Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals
Former Director of Conflict Resolution Education Network
First Director, Department of Dispute Resolution Services, Supreme Court of Virginia
Dispute Resolution Consultant to USAID/Multi-national Organizations
Former Chief Litigation Counsel, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
First Director, Multi-Door Dispute Resolution Division, Superior Court of the District of Columbia
Former Director of Dispute Resolution, Administrative Conference of the United States
Former Senior Counsel, U.S. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources
While their experience and expertise is diverse, these professionals share a common philosophy and approach to dispute resolution which emphasizes client choice.
The McCammon Group was formed in 1995 and is comprised of 52 retired judges and prominent attorneys located throughout Virginia, D.C. and Maryland. The Group handles a broad range of work in the areas of employment, contracts, construction, public policy, personal injury, family, and many other types of civil disputes.
