Description of Practice

Neil Groberg's mediation and arbitration practice are enhanced by his extensive experience in employment law. Prior to entering private practice he worked for a number of employers, including a nationwide insurance company, a railroad, a non-profit and a state agency. During this time, he provided legal counsel on a large variety of topics in the employment field, including sexual harassment and discrimination charges, layoffs, and wage-hour matters. In 1998 he went into private practice during which he counseled employers and employees on these issues. His neutral perspective and overall knowledge have increased with his college and graduate school teaching of business law and health care law. More details are at

Professional Background

Neil graduated from the Wharton School University of Pennsylvania and Hofstra University School of Law, and enhanced his formal education by,i.e., completing a Mediation Certificate course by the University of Connecticut Labor Education Center and two Executive Leadership courses. Also, after completing its intensive training program, he is a certified Better Business Bureau arbitrator. Completed the Alliance for Education in Dispute Resolution and Cornell's intensive Employment Arbitrator Training Program and U.S. Post Office's Redress mediation training. After the legally required training at the law's inception and with an updated course in 2012, Neil was qualified to mediate foreclosure actions in Vermont. Still, his education came not with a big law firm, but from working hand-in-hand with executives, supervisors, human resources professionals and employees on complicated and often emotional employment issues.
