Alternative Dispute Resolution
Mediation and Arbitration Services
WGM is home to attorneys with extensive experience and training as mediators and arbitrators. Several are devoting a substantial percentage of their time to mediation, with one limiting his practice exclusively to mediation and arbitration. Although most of our ADR cases come directly from attorneys, we are often appointed as mediators by local courts. We have successfully mediated a wide range of disputes, drawing especially on our experience with complex commercial cases and high-stakes personal injury claims.
Our philosophy is to explore every practical avenue toward facilitating a settlement, while recognizing that the settlement belongs to the parties and must serve their unique interests. We don’t agree with the old saying that a good settlement is one leaving both sides unhappy. A good settlement leaves both sides feeling that through a fair and dignified process they reached an optimal resolution to their dispute.
