Alternative dispute resolution
ADR is often required by a court or by the dispute resolution clause contained in the parties’ agreement. While ADR started in the areas of family law and workplace conflicts, it is becoming increasingly popular in the business world. In fact, ADR has grown exponentially in recent years as companies have pursued alternatives to costly and time-consuming litigation and arbitration.
We assist clients in settling disputes outside the courtroom or formal arbitral proceedings through various forms of ADR, employing such techniques as:
- Early neutral evaluation
- Non-binding arbitration
- Facilitated negotiation
Many of our attorneys also work as mediators, gaining valuable insights that they use when they counsel clients through the ADR process.
Our track record provides our clients with the means to resolve disputes often before the first pleading has to be filed. When an investigation or case involves publicity, our lawyers have unique experience understanding how to handle cases with legal, media and market issues.
Many of the team serve as mediators — and can bring a unique perspective to proceedings.
