Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) is the process by which parties attempt to resolve disputes short of litigation, e.g. pre-litigation mediation, settlement conferences, neutral evaluation, and arbitration. The Firm believes that, in most cases, litigation is the last resort.  The Firm believes that before filing suit, it is often beneficial to consider various forms of ADR.  If that is unsuccessful, the Firm will file suit in federal or state court. The Firm will also handle formal mediations and arbitrations, as well as other administrative hearings.

In addition to actively seek early resolution for our clients, the Firm’s attorneys are available to serve as mediators and/or arbitrators in numerous practice areas, including employment and business litigation.
