Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our Alternative Dispute Resolution attorneys are uniquely skilled in mediation and arbitration.

In order to combat the ever increasing cost of litigation, you can take advantage of the vast experience of our attorneys in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”). ADR has become an alternative to the adversarial system employed in our overburdened courts. ADR encompasses techniques which are designed to resolve disputes without a trial.

Mediation is a process where a trained mediator facilitates negotiations between opposing parties in an effort to arrive at a fair settlement. We provide neutral mediators with decades of experience as litigators and judges. They often provide their special insights to help arrive at a resolution mutually beneficial to the parties.

Our ADR Practice Group also has extensive experience in serving as arbitrators. Arbitration may be required under a prior or current agreement of the parties or by Court Order. The arbitration process is usually less formal, quicker and more cost-effective than a trial. The arbitration decision is often binding on the parties.

In addition, parties often take advantage of the extensive experience of retired Judges Michael K. Diamond and Paul J. Vichness to arbitrate, mediate, case manage complex litigation and/or to act as Special Discovery Masters.
