Neil Groberg, Attorney at Law, provides mediation, arbitration, facilitation, teaching, training, and independent harassment investigations in Vermont, throughout the Northeast and beyond! Employers and employees, businesses, aggrieved individuals and others rely on Neil and the almost 40 years of experience he brings to the table.
Neil graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Hofstra University School of Law. He enhanced his formal education by, among other things, completing a Mediation Certificate course sponsored by the University of Connecticut Labor Education Center, three Executive Leadership courses and extensive Improvisation training.
Taking advantage of his superior education, training and experience, Neil has successfully resolved many disputes that were already in - or bound for - litigation.
Throughout his career in employment law he confronted a variety of business and employment issues. Neil is acutely aware of the negative impact litigation has on all participants in a business, health care non-profit or employment setting. As a result he vigorously pursues solving disputes before they degenerate into litigation.
He also teaches Health Care Law for Champlain College's B.S. and Masters of Health Care Administration online programs. This enhances his knowledge base and ability to mediate issues in this complex area.
He has also taught college courses related to Business Law and Employment Law.
Neil’s years of legal experience involved issues related to employment, health care, general corporate, commercial real estate, computer, contracts, insurance, real estate, and tax law. He has worked for a major unionized transportation organization, a national publicly-traded commercial insurance company, a civil rights organization and in his private counseling practice. Through his own firm he advised many diverse organizations including automobile dealerships, health care providers, non-profits and web providers. In addition, he has counseled individuals with employment-related conflicts.
Neil's participation on a number of non-profit boards, government commissions and independent community organizations allow him a special sensitivity to the challenges of those entities and those who work for and support them.
Neil’s lifelong commitment to resolving conflict led him to becoming a mediator, arbitrator, facilitator teacher and trainer. He has mediated and arbitrated on a private basis and under the auspices of organizations like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Better Business Bureau, the State of Connecticut and one of Connecticut’s largest unions.
Neil seeks mediation, arbitration, facilitation, teaching and training assignments that will tap into his energy, expertise and quest for non-litigious resolution of disputes.
