Due to the delays, expense, and uncertainty of trials, the vast majority (>95%) of lawsuits are settled before trial through voluntary, non-binding mediation or are submitted to adjudication through some form of private arbitration. The skills and experience to advocate for and represent a client successfully in these types of alternate dispute resolution processes are different than pursuing traditional litigation ending in a trial.
Our team of litigators has decades of experience in all aspects of mediation and arbitration. We work closely with our clients to determine if some form of ADR is appropriate in lieu of or complementary to the judicial system, and we draw on our vast experience in all facets of litigation to select the ADR neutrals who will most likely resolve our clients’ disputes successfully and in a quick and efficient manner. As skilled advocates, we represent individuals, closely-held businesses and corporations in mediations and arbitrations, and draw on the insight of our numerous certified mediators, former members of the judiciary, and deep litigation bench in order to simplify and clarify the issues so as to render our clients’ ADR position persuasive. As experienced ADR advocates, we are also skilled at exploring and devising creative ways to have the ADR neutral advance our clients’ underlying interests and goals.
