DeGroote Partners is proud to announce that firm founder John DeGroote has been named to The National Law Journal’s inaugural ADR Champions list of top mediators in the U.S. and also among the best mediators in North Texas by D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas.
A better way to mediate and arbitrate.
Decisive leadership for special business situations.
Because clients want more.
Can mediators do more to get complex commercial disputes settled? Can they add value earlier in the process? Can they get mediation back to the efficient alternative it used to be? DeGroote Partners provides customized approaches to get deals done. Firm founder John DeGroote has seen disputes from every angle: as the client, as in-house counsel, as outside counsel, as an arbitrator, and as a mediator. He’s clear on what actually gets complex cases resolved — and how that has changed over the past 25 years.
Because complex situations demand business experience,
legal expertise, and more.
Special situations are those opportunities in which new leadership can make a real difference, and this is where the team at DeGroote Partners demonstrates their value. Whether it’s an underperforming asset to be maximized, gridlock that must be broken, or a relationship that can’t proceed without an intermediary, John and his team serve as honest brokers with a unique combination of executive, operational, and financial expertise to make a difference.

I’m grateful to this day for the experiences and education I received at Duke Law, so it was quite a thrill when the Duke University School of Law alumni publication tracked me down for an April 2014 feature story. This piece focuses on my commitment to mentoring, which is something that I feel very strongly about.
