He has had over 250 hours of advanced training as a mediator, and is certified as a Family Business Advisor by the Family Firm Institute. Disputes mediated by Mr. Lutringer range from those between members of small and family owned businesses (including among the second generation), to domestic and international industrial, investment and financial companies.
