From 1985 through 2002, Matt Geyer was a Commercial Litigation Partner at two of San Francisco’s premier law firms – Landels Ripley & Diamond and Rogers Joseph O’Donnell – where his practice covered a wide range of legal issues and industries.

In 1991, Mr. Geyer began serving as a neutral arbitrator through the American Arbitration Association, in commercial cases involving a similar range of law and industries. At the end of 2001, he began to focus his practice increasingly on service as a neutral. A year later, in the wake of changes in California law affecting arbitrators and mediators, he left the big firm life – and the conflicts such a practice presents for neutrals – to set up his own firm in San Francisco.

Mr. Geyer’s practice now focuses primarily on service as a neutral arbitrator and mediator, either through the AAA or his own office. He is a Fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators, and on the Board of Directors of The Mediation Society.  He is a member of the AAA’s National Roster of Commercial Arbitrators, its Large Complex Case Panel, its Securities Panel and its Mediation Panel.
