Roderick Thompson


Rod Thompson applies his deep experience in complex commercial litigation from three different perspectives—as a trial lawyer, mediator and arbitrator—to efficiently resolve even the most difficult cases. Before joining JAMS, Mr. Thompson was an associate and then partner at a large international law firm for the first 20 years of his career, specializing in antitrust, competition and intellectual property litigation. For the next 20 years, he was a partner at a midsize Bay Area law firm known for success and its willingness to represent plaintiffs, as well as defendants, in high-stakes commercial litigation. All the while, Mr. Thompson served as neutral arbitrator, mediator and early neutral evaluator as time permitted.
