NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) announces customized program for resolution of self-storage disputes

NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) announces that it has created a customized program for the resolution of self-storage disputes.

NAM’s Self-Storage Industry Dispute Resolution program is focused on providing arbitration services specifically to self-storage operators and their rental tenants to help them resolve their disputes throughout the United States and Canada.

With an upward trend in adding arbitration clauses to rental agreements and employment contracts, NAM stands ready to offer cost effective solutions to self-storage owners and operators to assist with all their ADR needs. NAM also offers a separate Employment Dispute Resolution program to resolve employment-related matters.

According to Jacqueline Silvey Esq., NAM’s general counsel, “NAM can administer in-person or virtual arbitrations in geographically suitable locations, using a distinct set of rules and procedures for resolving disputes relating to the rental of a self-storage unit. NAM also offers the option of having a member of a panel of pre-selected NAM neutrals arbitrate matters based solely upon the submission of documentation. With NAM’s cost-effective fees and knowledgeable case managers who are familiar with the nuances specific to the resolution of these types of disputes, NAM is the arbitration administrator of choice for designation in self-storage rental agreements and employment contracts.”

Ms. Silvey added, “We have been fortunate to work closely with Carlos Kaslow and Scott Zucker of The Self-Storage Legal Network. Their guidance about the nuances of the self-storage industry has been invaluable and has taken us to a place where we stand ready, with our own specific rules, to assist self-storage owners and their tenants and/or employees to help them move forward in the resolution of any matters.”
