Before becoming a full-time neutral in 1994, Randall Wulff was a trial lawyer with Farella Braun & Martel LLP in San Francisco for 20 years, specializing in complex commercial, construction, intellectual property, securities, insurance coverage, real estate and employment litigation, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Mr. Wulff received his J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, in 1974, where he was ranked first academically in his class in 1972 and 1973, achieving the academic honoraries of the Order of the Coif and Thurston Society. In 1974, he then served as Hastings' first extern for the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, and also worked on the editorial staff of the Hastings Law Journal. In addition to his active trial practice at Farella, he was also an adjunct professor at Hastings, having taught courses in "Trial Evidence" and "Complex Litigation." Mr. Wulff has tried cases in federal court, state court and the U.S. Court of Claims. He has also arbitrated many cases and acted as an arbitrator in several more. Mr. Wulff's background in trial work led to his active interest in mediation, looking for faster, more economical results for his clients. He successfully settled roughly 100 cases for his clients as an advocate in mediations or mini-trials.
Because of this extensive experience, Mr. Wulff has been selected as a mediator in over two thousand diverse cases, settling most of those cases. They have ranged from two-party cases to suits involving more than one hundred parties.
Mr. Wulff successfully mediated the $2.75 billion agreement between Discover, Mastercard and Visa. He also mediated the $1.1 billion class action settlement of the Microsoft antitrust claims in California.
In 2004, after a nationwide search for several months, Mr. Wulff was selected by the Chief Judge in the Southern District of New York to lead the panel that heard and decided the property damage claims for the World Trade Center arising from the tragedy on September 11. This included reconstruction costs as well as business interruption claims. These insurance claims were roughly four times larger than any other in the history of the industry.
Mr. Wulff is co-editor of two books, the Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Guide (West Group 1993-2003), as well as a second book devoted specifically to ADR for the construction industry, both being marketed nationally. He has also published numerous articles on alternative dispute resolution ("ADR"), and contributed the chapter on "Mediation" to the nationally published ADR Handbook. He has spoken on mediation at numerous national and international conferences and conventions.
The Mediation Society selected Mr. Wulff in 2004 as its "Mediator of the Year." Mr. Wulff received the American Arbitration Association's 1990 Award as its outstanding mediator in Northern California. He is regularly selected among the "top" mediators in polls done periodically by the legal newspapers, The Recorder and the Daily Journal. Mr. Wulff regularly appears in each annual selection of SuperLawyers and Best Lawyers in America and other similar published evaluations. He is one of two mediators in California to receive a first tier rating from Chambers & Partners for construction mediation. Mr. Wulff was selected the ADR Lawyer of the Year from Oakland in the Best Lawyers 2011 edition.
