Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation, is a requirement in virtually all litigation. When conducted at the right time, with the right preparation, and with the right strategy, mediation can achieve a more predictable and cost-effective resolution of a dispute than other forms of dispute resolution. Our attorneys have guided clients through hundreds of mediations. That experience allows us to bring unique strategies, effective presentation methods, and creative negotiating skills to the table to help our clients in making sound business decisions about their cases.
In addition to advocating for clients at mediation, some of our lawyers serve as mediators in select cases.
