Atlanta Mediation Firm Expands to Better Serve Attorneys and Clients

BAY Mediation & Arbitration Services is proud to announce the grand opening of its new 4,000 square-foot office expansion. The new space will allow BAY’s neutrals to better serve the attorneys of Georgia and provide a comfortable, effective space to address growing alternative dispute resolution needs.


The expansion, which began in January of 2017, brings the total number of conference rooms available at BAY to 30. It also adds a large conference space that can be used for large mediations, arbitrations or mock trials.


All of BAY’s fully-equipped conference rooms include flat screen TVs for presentations, Internet access, computer hook-ups, speaker phones, and DVD/VHS capability. Projectors and screens and teleconferencing via webcam are available upon request.


The space now offers two self-serve galley style kitchens with drinks and snacks available to guests anytime throughout the day. Made-to-order meals are provided each day, as well as freshly baked cookies in the afternoons.


A new reception area and an area for guests to relax and watch television, read or work were also added during the expansion. Throughout the space, guests will enjoy beautiful designer furniture and artwork on loan from attorney and photographer Doug Powell.


“This new space gives us the opportunity to offer the efficient, effective and economical service we are known for to a larger community of Georgia attorneys,” says BAY mediator Bruce Barrickman. “Our goal is to make attorneys and their clients as comfortable as possible to facilitate successful mediations.”
