Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our arbitrators, mediators, and neutrals have a well-earned reputation for creatively mediating practical solutions and for fairly and promptly rendering arbitral awards.  Recognized for their alternative dispute resolution (ADR) skills, senior partners routinely serve as neutrals at the request of peers nationwide, through organizations known for high standards and thorough vetting of ADR neutrals, and via court appointments.


We are experienced in educating companies, whether small business or Fortune 500, about the benefits of ADR, designing systems to avoid litigation and to funnel disputes to ADR, drafting contractual ADR clauses, and resolving disputes through ADR processes whether domestic or international.  We have a high success rate in resolving personal injury, product liability, business litigation, securities and broker-customer disputes, insurance coverage, class action and employment cases via ADR processes.
