MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION

Many legal disputes can be resolved via mediation or arbitration rather than traditional court litigation. Mediation is facilitated negotiation, whereby the parties to the dispute utilize the services of a mediator to help them resolve their dispute. The mediator does not render a decision and cannot force the parties to settle. Arbitration is more similar to court litigation, but with a less formal setting. The arbitrator generally renders a binding and enforceable decision after the conclusion of an arbitration hearing.

The key to successful alternative dispute resolution is the skill of the professional who conducts it. As your advocates, our lawyers can draw upon their depth of experience to provide a coherent, effective, and persuasive representation of your interests, or provide you with the support you need to get the best possible result.

In addition to having extensive litigation experience, our lawyers have experience acting as mediators and arbitrators, providing a more timely and cost-effective dispute resolution that is available through the courts. Without support and involvement, you can take control and resolve matters and quickly and creatively as you want.
