Alternative Dispute Resolution

Litigation in the courts, while time-honored and oftentimes the only way to achieve resolution of business disputes, is increasingly being recognized by many as cumbersome, slow, and expensive. Many a businessperson has lamented: “There must be a better way.” Well, there are other ways to resolve many business disputes, and sometimes they are, indeed, better. While not exactly panaceas, processes such as early neutral evaluation, mediation, arbitration, summary jury trial, and summary bench trial which collectively have come to be known as “alternative dispute resolution” techniques or just “ADR” in many instances result in faster and cheaper resolution of disputes. The attorneys in our Litigation Practice Group are well versed in all ADR techniques and frequently represent clients in court-annexed ADR proceedings, as well as ADR efforts conducted through private ADR-sponsoring organizations, such as the American Arbitration Association, the CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution, JAMS, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
