VAR FOX

Executive Vice President and Co-Founder


Var Fox is a principal of Judicate West and a member of the executive committee. In addition to helping grow and run the company, Var oversees legal matters, risk management and ethics for Judicate West.

Var was one of Judicate West's first Case Managers, and continues to serve as a very effective trainer and mentor to the case management team. He is an expert on ADR rules and processes and uses this knowledge and experience to quickly assess the needs of clients; this is the reason so many JW clients seek his case consulting expertise in helping to select the right neutrals for their cases.

Var began his career in the ADR industry over 20 years ago in New York with Judicate, Inc., The National Private Court System. In 1993, he and his partner bought out the company's West Coast interests and formed Judicate West. Since then, Var has been a guiding force in the outstanding growth and success of the firm.

On the personal side, Var is active in many charitable endeavors, always looking to help those in need. Var holds a second-degree black belt in Kung Fu (which he earned in 2000), enjoys fitness on a daily basis and watching sports, his favorites being baseball and boxing. He also enjoys reading his favorite book, the Bible.


I have a great passion for this business which is reinforced daily as I interact with our humble and dedicated Neutrals, witness the outstanding work ethic and culture of our employees, and hear directly from our clients about the results our team delivered for them.
