Mediation and Arbitration
We recognize that mediation, arbitration and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedures can often lead to a quicker and less expensive outcome than litigation. Several of our attorneys serve as mediators and/or arbitrators, and in those roles have worked with hundreds of parties to resolve conflicts outside of the courtroom. One of our partners has also been trained in civil collaborative law, an emerging ADR process in civil litigation.
When serving as advocates for our clients, we regularly engage in early case assessment to determine what ADR techniques best serve our clients’ interests.
Our firm’s business and transactional lawyers often incorporate ADR clauses in a range of commercial agreements.
