We like to use all tools available to assist our clients. Alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, can often be a desirable way to more efficiently resolve expensive litigation and find creative solutions to our clients’ business problems. Our work consists not only of advocating for our clients in arbitrating the disputes themselves but also providing counseling and advice as to whether or not arbitration is the best path forward and what other avenues are available to achieve a successful outcome, because we understand that sometimes “winning at all costs” is not really winning.
And we also know what it’s like to serve as a neutral mediator or arbitrator. We have lawyers who are trained mediators, lawyers who have been invited to serve on the National Panel of Arbitrators for the American Arbitration Association, and lawyers who are invited by the parties to serve as arbitrators. This unique experience gives us insight into the strategies on both sides of the table.
