After a nation-wide search, Mr. Wulff was selected to resolve the property damage claims arising from the tragedy of 9/11. He spent over 2 years in New York presiding as the sole neutral in arbitral proceedings and simultaneously served as mediator to determine how much the tower of insurers owed. The claims were the largest in the history of the insurance industry by a factor of 4.
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.
