BASF Welcomes Bill Helvestine and Tonya Salehi as Mediation Services Panelists

Helvestine

Helvestine

Bill Helvestine, Crowell & Moring, has more than 40 years’ experience handling complex business litigation. His recent work concentrated on the healthcare industry where he is a widely recognized expert, but his deep experience is not limited to healthcare.

He has handled a wide variety of other cases including employment wrongful discharge and discrimination, real estate development and finance, securities law, partnership dissolution, corporate governance disputes, and state and federal governmental investigations including an antitrust grand jury investigation.

Helvestine is known for finding creative solutions to complex problems. Clients praise his ability to “come up with good, practical solutions,” and also say, “He is insightful … and is able to explain things in an accessible manner.”

Salehi

Salehi

Tonya Saheli, JD, MS, is the owner of Saheli Legal Mediation and has been mediating in court and in her private practice for over five years. She has mediated hundreds of contract, property and landlord tenant disputes in court, as well as divorce and child custody cases privately, which makes her a good fit for mediating cases of this nature.

Coming from a health and science background before entering the field of law, Saheli’s earlier career affords her a keen understanding of medical and healthcare practices which aids in effective healthcare mediations as well.
