Interview With Christopher P. Kriesen

In 2017, I opened Kalon, a law firm devoted to social good, built on a lean, efficient business model. Although I litigate at the trial and appellate levels, most of my practice is serving as a mediator or arbitrator, helping people resolve their conflicts, helping them create value by exploring interests, and expanding options.

Before Kalon, I was a servant to traditional business models. Now I’m seeking a more fulfilling life, in line with my values, with giving back and paying it forward as guiding principles. I attended the Advanced Mediation Workshop at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and completed the LEAD executive education program in corporate innovation at the Stanford GSB.
