President, Gene Commander Inc.     


“I’m excited to bring my legal and construction industry experience to DURA and help support impactful redevelopment projects in the Denver market that would not be possible without the expertise and resources DURA and the City are capable of providing to private developers.”

Gene Commander Inc provides alternative dispute resolution services designed to help business and construction professionals avoid and successfully resolve commercial and construction disputes by using proactive mediation and arbitration strategies. Commander has provided professional alternative dispute resolution services for more than 20 years in proceedings administered privately and through the American Arbitration Association.
