John E. Osborn P.C. offers a wide range of mediation services concentrating in commercial, construction and real estate disputes, as well as relating to the dissolution of business entities.

Our mediation services are built upon Clare B. Connaughton and John E. Osborn’s track records as litigators for over 30 years. They have negotiated over a dozen complex commercial matters including construction, environmental, real estate and corporate matters as part of the litigation process. Both have a keen awareness for analyzing case law, contract provisions and obtain favorable results for clients.

Ms. Connaughton and Mr. Osborn recognize that the dynamics and ‘creativity’ of the mediation process really work, and their experience places them in a unique position to take contentious and expensive cases and help settle them.

Ms. Connaughton has been effective in ensuring that the parties in a business divorce resolve differences and move on to be effective members of the business community. Clare has also been successful in resolving complex commercial matters as a mediator in federal courts and she has been instrumental in training and resolving workplace conflicts for hotels.

Mr. Osborn has presided over the dissolution of construction and architectural firms and has been instrumental in implanting business repositioning which has allowed architects and construction companies and real estate entities the ability to dissolve. He has also served as counsel to the receiver to a major Manhattan hotel.
