“Thinking Outside the ADR Box: Neutral Analysis and Mock Exercises”

In this program, Hon. Gregory Sleet (Ret.) will discuss often-underutilized tools in ADR: neutral analysis and mock exercises. Judge Sleet will define Neutral Analysis and explain the different options and processes counsel have (mock trials and arguments, oral or written analysis, one or a panel of neutrals), the benefits of utilizing neutral analysis, and how in-house counsel can engage with their outside counsel to be active participants in the process. This interactive program will give in-house counsel an opportunity to ask questions about the process and learn how it can be used to their advantage for various disputes and in all phases of litigation.


Hon. Gregory M. Sleet (Ret.) joined JAMS after serving 20 years on the bench of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, including seven years as Chief Judge. During Judge Sleet’s tenure on the District Court bench, he gained deep experience in a number of areas of complex commercial litigation, especially patent litigation involving pharmaceutical patents and a wide variety of other technologies. Judge Sleet presided over and resolved by pretrial ruling, trial, or settlement thousands of cases involving a wide variety of subject matter, including: intellectual property, antitrust, bankruptcy, class actions, business/commercial, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, products liability, and securities and tax. Judge Sleet focuses his national practice on mediations, arbitrations and neutral analysis (case evaluation, mock trial).

Before taking the federal bench in 1998, Judge Sleet acquired varied experience in civil and criminal litigation and corporate legal work. He served as the United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, as in-house counsel in the legal department of Hercules Incorporated, and as deputy attorney general handling major civil cases for the State of Delaware .Prior to that, he practiced law in Philadelphia for 14 years, six of those as an assistant public defender with the Defender Association of Philadelphia.
