by | Jun 10, 2022

This episode of The Rebekah Panepinto Project features a conversation with Shane Mulrooney, Co-Founder, and Head of Growth at New Era ADR. The legal space is steeped in tradition and, if there’s one thing COVID made clear, it’s that innovation in this space is not just useful but also necessary moving forward. Shane shares how they remove some of the pain of dull lawyering tasks. He also shares the innovations they usher like the “neutral bench,” a diverse panel of mediators who may have a deeper understanding of cases. Lastly, Shane shares how he stays fit and how speaking your mind is central to collaboration. HIGHLIGHTS Remote dispute resolution and making legal tech mainstream Giving back lawyers’ lives to them Moving the needle for a diverse “neutral bench” Mental toughness and the value of speaking up QUOTES Shane: “We’re trying to give them a tool where they can actually spend time doing the fun lawyering which is arguing the substance of the case, drafting arguments, and really litigating instead of poring over boxes of documents and doing mind-numbing discovery.” Shane: “The pool is going to be what the pool is, however, we can always make sure that when we are pulling those 10 who have the right experience, we can always make sure that that 10 is much more diverse and much more reflective of the population writ large.” Shane: “I think it’s the best way to run a business and to make decisions is to just make sure that everybody can be honest and free to speak their mind.” Find out more about Shane in the link below: LinkedIn:…
