DeGroote recognized for experience, creative approach to dispute resolution
DALLAS – 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.
Mr. DeGroote is one of only six Texas-based mediators and arbitrators selected for the National Law Journal listing and one of 48 nationwide. The national publication noted his diverse background as a general counsel and as an executive, in addition to his reputation for reaching creative solutions through early intervention and cutting-edge techniques. Mr. DeGroote’s inclusion in D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas for mediation is based on peer nominations in the North Texas legal community and research by the D Magazine editorial staff.

“With experience as a litigator, corporate counsel, and business executive, he brings rare and valuable perspective to dispute resolution,” says the NLJ profile of Mr. DeGroote. “John 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.”
That approach places Mr. DeGroote at the forefront of the changing ADR landscape, according to the publication.
“John’s direct and creative approach to problem-solving exemplifies how ADR is adapting to the evolving nature of business conflicts and the value that parties place in finding resolution with greater speed than the courts can provide,” the profile article continues.
