Arbitration & Mediation
In many of today’s complex legal cases, arbitration and mediation are a common means of resolving disputes. In fact, one of our attorneys is a certified mediator and arbitrator who is often selected by our peers to resolve conflicts that cannot be settled in court.
In the area of arbitration, we represent and advise clients who must present their cases to selected neutral third parties for resolution. In mediation, we help guide clients as they participate in reaching an informal resolution agreement outside of court.
Many business contracts contain provisions requiring arbitration and/or mediation, and many courts now require these alternative dispute resolution procedures to reduce the court’s caseload. Thus, we focus on understanding our clients’ needs to represent their best interests before mediators and arbitration panels – because resolving disputes shouldn’t be overwhelming, no matter what the circumstances.
