Jeremy Seeley loves getting deals done. To get to those deals, he works collaboratively with attorneys and clients on both sides to craft creative solutions that allow both sides to leave the mediation satisfied. His mediation and negotiation philosophy is grounded in practical experience and in formal training from Harvard’s Program on Negotiation where he completed the Mediating Disputes program.
He recognizes that no single mediation approach can fit every case, so Jeremy fits negotiation tools to the specific needs of the matter at hand. He recognizes a role for hard bargaining, vigorous debate, and empathetic listening.
Jeremy has successfully litigated plaintiff and defense cases, giving him insight into the unique pressures and opportunities of both sides. His litigation practice includes catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases, large-loss subrogation actions, insurance bad faith and coverage claims, HOA disputes, municipal defense claims, professional liability claims, construction defect cases, and contract disputes. He has also successfully briefed and argued appellate cases in both state and federal courts.
Jeremy has been recognized repeatedly for his litigation practice in Super Lawyers and Utah Business Magazine, but his real pride is in gratitude from his clients after guiding them to positive resolutions.
While he views his litigation experience as a helpful foundation for evaluating disputes, Jeremy has learned that parties taking ownership of their own disputes—and of their mediation—is the most likely path to a satisfactory—or even a happy—settlement.
As much as Jeremy loves his work, he prefers hiking, sailing, reading, good food, and spending time with his wife and three children. He regularly volunteers in his community and serves on the board of directors for the New Horizons Maritime Center, a non-profit dedicated to using traditional maritime activities to improve the lives of young people.
His is a proud graduate of Utah State University and the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU.
Finally, Jeremy strives to create an atmosphere of safety, tolerance, and inclusion in all his work and leisure.
