LARRY ROSEN

LARRY ROSEN

LARRY ROSEN practices family law mediation at his firm Through Understanding. After graduating from UCLA School of Law in 1993 in the top ten percent of his class and Editor of the Law Review, he served for several years in the U.S. and Asia as a negotiator for American and international concerns locked in dispute. It was there that he developed a strong perspective on how to de-escalate conflict: bring the parties to authentic understanding of each other's experience. Subsequently, in 1998, Mr. Rosen became the CEO of Artmosphere, a visionary venture capital funded company offering trainings in teamwork, communication and creative problem solving. While at Artmosphere, Mr. Rosen began the sincere study of conflict, directing much time and energy into the practice of Nonviolent Communication (also known by many as NVC). He was drawn to mediation as a path of healing for individuals and as a way to contribute to the world at large, and in 2001 founded Through Understanding.
