Tierney is a past chair of the State Bar’s ADR Section, has ranked four times among Super Lawyers’ Top 50 Arizona attorneys, and is a 16-time Best Lawyers honoree. He serves on the American Arbitration Association (AAA) commercial and construction arbitration panels and construction mediation panel. Shively, an 11-time Super Lawyers selection and a 12-time Best Lawyers honoree, is a member of two of AAA’s top arbitration panels — commercial and construction — and frequently serves as a mediator, settlement conference judge and arbitrator in complex cases involving construction, creditors’ rights, real estate and general commercial disputes. Gillis, another Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers honoree, has extensive AAA experience and serves on its construction and commercial arbitration and mediation panels.
