Philip E. Cutler
Arbitration & Mediation Services
Mediation and arbitration can be thought of as a dance, though, tailored as they must be to the parties' needs, less choreographed than Jack Mackie's iconic Dance Steps

Recognized by his peers since 1999 as a Super Lawyer for his ADR work, Phil brings to his role as mediator, arbitrator and special master many years of experience advising and counseling clients in business and complex commercial litigation and resolving their cases.

When a dispute arises, businesses and those who run businesses need to resolve the dispute effectively and efficiently. Phil Cutler has over 40 years experience in complex litigation, mediation and arbitration of commercial and business disputes arising in a wide variety of substantive areas and contexts. He has tried cases in court and arbitration and has mediated or arbitrated over 500 cases, privately or through ADR providers such as the American Arbitration Association, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the Western District of Washington’s Rule 39.1 panel of neutrals and the King County Superior Court Mandatory Arbitration Program. A frequent speaker on mediation and arbitration, Phil also consults with counsel and their clients on ADR practice and procedure.
