Even when parties would like to settle their dispute, not every claim and case can be resolved informally. In such situations, the parties should explore formal alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) options. Based on years of legal practice, we have thorough knowledge of ADR procedures and strategies. Most cases are resolved outside the courtroom using common methods such as mediation and arbitration. In mediation, a neutral person (the mediator) facilitates negotiations between the parties with the goal of settling the dispute on terms acceptable to both sides. In arbitration, a neutral arbitrator receives evidence, hears testimony, and then issues a binding ruling to conclude the matter. Given that trials can be lengthy, costly, and uncertain, ADR can be a good choice. We have achieved many positive outcomes for our clients in mediations and arbitrations, and we believe that ADR should be considered seriously as a potential way to conclude disputes.
