While litigation is inevitable in certain circumstances, our trial lawyers also are leaders in arbitration and the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques. Our lawyers are familiar with the entire range of ADR mechanisms, including neutral evaluation, appraisal arbitration, mediation, dispute review boards, and mini-trials. The breadth of our arbitration experience enables us to determine when and whether the use of arbitration or other ADR processes are more appropriate than full-blown litigation culminating in jury or bench trials. Our approach to ADR invariably depends on the client’s objectives, the procedural rules of the forum and the specific circumstances of each case. In certain circumstances, ADR can foster a quick cost-effective resolution to legal disputes.
