ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Alternative Dispute Resolution ("ADR"), Including Mediation and Arbitration

Avoiding litigation through Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) can save clients significant time, money, and resources. ADR offers confidentiality, requires less time away from work for employees and executives, and provides a quick resolution.

If the ADR is mediation, the parties meet with a mediator and attempt to decide the value of a case for settlement. The parties can make their decision to settle and the decision is not left up to a judge, jury, or arbitrator.

If the ADR is arbitration, the parties and their witnesses give sworn testimony and introduce exhibits before an arbitrator who then makes a decision. The advantages of this procedure are privacy, no appeal, less cost, and a quicker resolution.

We have helped clients procure resolutions by mediation or arbitration in simple disputes between a seller and a buyer, as well as complex disputes involving numerous parties and millions of dollars. We generally try to get parties in either mediation or arbitration to select a mediator or arbitrator from our list of retired judges who have extensive experience and training in mediation and arbitration.
