Alternative Dispute Resolution
Not every dispute between parties requires the filing of a lawsuit or a trial. Some conflicts are better suited for resolution by way of mediation or arbitration. We recognize that, and we accept and embrace the challenge of resolving disputes amicably. We have successfully mediated and arbitrated 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.
