Wiand Guerra King Launches Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice

TAMPA, FL – – via eTeligis – Wiand Guerra King, P.L. announces the launch of WGK-ADR, a dispute resolution practice focused on complex litigation matters. This unique offering provides mediation and private arbitrations of complex disputes. WGK-ADR also assists with mock arbitrations or other case evaluation services desired by businesses and individuals.

The principals of WGK-ADR, W. Donald Cox, W. Reece Bader and Burton W. Wiand, collectively have over 120 years of hands-on experience litigating and resolving complex business disputes. The principals of WGK-ADR are dedicated to the concept that private resolution of disputes is efficient, economical and beneficial for the parties and the judicial system. These legal professionals have throughout their careers engaged in resolving the most complicated and complex of business disputes.

Reece Bader recently joined WGK-ADR after 45 years of litigation practice with Orrick Herrington and Sutcliffe LLP (“Orrick”). At Orrick his internationally renowned legal practice focused on securities class actions, shareholder derivative actions, broker-dealer litigation, SEC and SRO investigations, disciplinary and enforcement proceedings and counseling, commodities litigation, environmental litigation and counseling and employment and corporate disputes. His notable experience includes substantial jury and non-jury trials, as well as arbitrations and administrative hearings before the SEC, NYSE, FINRA, AMEX and NFA. Bader received his B.A. from Williams College in 1963 and his J.D. from Duke Law School where he was editor of the Duke Law Journal. He clerked with the Honorable Warren E. Burger, U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, from 1966-1968. He has served in leadership roles with both the ABA and SIFMA. His scholarship and publications demonstrate that he is a recognized authority with respect to arbitrations and dispute resolution.

The second principal of WGK-ADR, Don Cox is also a nationally recognized commercial litigation lawyer. After receiving his undergraduate degree from Duke University and his legal training at the University of Virginia, Cox joined Fowler White Boggs where he practiced for 47 years, serving as both General Counsel and Head of Litigation for the firm. In the fall of 2013 Cox left Fowler White to continue his litigation practice with Wiand Guerra King. He will also serve as a principal of WGK-ADR.

During his long career, Cox has advised clients in Florida and nationwide in a broad variety of commercial litigation, regulatory, administrative, and appellate matters. He has extensive jury and non-jury trial experience in federal and state court, as well as before federal and state agencies in administrative proceedings. Cox has advised clients include insurance litigation and regulatory matters, securities and financial services litigation and arbitration, complex commercial litigation, class actions, professional liability, products liability, government investigations and internal investigations.

Cox served as a member of the Securities Litigation Committee for the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association, and was appointed by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York to serve on the Steering Committee for the Distribution of the Michael Milken Settlement Fund. He has served on the Judicial Nominating Procedures Committee of The Florida Bar. Don is Board Certified by The Florida Bar in both Business Litigation Law and Civil Trial Law and certified by The Florida Supreme Court as a Circuit Civil Mediator. Don is AV Preeminent Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell and was recognized by Chambers as a leading insurance lawyer in Florida (2004-2013).

The third principal of WGK-ADR, Burt Wiand, the Chairman of Wiand Guerra King, also has a long history of complex litigation. His career began as a litigator with the Securities and Exchange Commission where he served in the Division of Enforcement for almost 14 years. Thereafter he entered private practice in Florida and developed a financial services practice with a national reputation with what was one of Florida’s largest and most prestigious law firms. He has litigated cases at the trial and appellate level throughout Florida and the United States. He has also represented clients in hundreds of arbitration proceedings.

In 2009, with other colleagues he founded Wiand Guerra King. He is a mediator certified by the Supreme Court of Florida. Most recently, Wiand has served as Receiver appointed by the United States District Court to resolve the $400 million Ponzi scheme of Arthur Nadel.

The shareholders of Wiand Guerra King believe that the launch of WGK-ADR is particularly timely as ADR procedures have become almost universal in resolving disputes in the State of Florida and the benefits of mediation and arbitration are being accepted nationally, even in those jurisdictions that have been slow to mandate those procedures.

Wiand, Chairman of Wiand Guerra King, stated, “The ability to offer the skills and knowledge of professionals like Reece Bader and Don Cox to provide ADR services made our firm’s decision to launch WGK-ADR compelling.”

More information regarding WGK-ADR and its principals is available at or contact any of the principals of WGK-ADR at 813-347-5100.

The law firm of Wiand Guerra King was formed in 2009 with ten lawyers. The firm has grown by 70% since then, and its current seventeen professionals regularly handle complex commercial litigation and arbitration. The firm also handles white collar and regulatory investigations and enforcement matters involving securities, trade practices, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and insurance matters. In its first year, Wiand Guerra King was recognized as a Top Tier firm by U.S News & World Report’s Best Law Firms in America. The founding members, with over 100 years of collective experience, have been recognized nationally and locally as among the top lawyers in Florida and the United States.
