Mr. Stern has recently joined The Mediation Group. Founded in 1985, The Mediation Group began with the idea of taking a caring, interdisciplinary approach to conflict resolution.

Previously, Mr. Stern was with the distinguished Boston litigation firm of Sugarman, Rogers, Barshak & Cohen, P.C. for his entire career, and a partner from 1977 to 2014. He has served as a mediator and arbitrator for more than 20 years, initially through the Middlesex Multidoor Courthouse, a court-annexed program of the Superior Court of Middlesex County. He has also conducted mediations and arbitrations under the auspices of other organizations, but in recent years his ADR practice was primarily a practice area, within his firm. His mediation practice focuses on a wide variety of business disputes, as well as personal injury, including in particular cases of factual complexity arising from product liability, medical malpractice and/or insurance coverage issues.

He also has been a guest lecturer on mediation at Harvard, Boston College, Boston University and Northeastern law schools.
