Alternative Dispute Resolution – Negotiation, Mediation, Arbitration

Although sometimes litigation is necessary, it is not always the first or best choice for handling legal disputes. Many matters lend themselves to alternate forms of dispute resolution, which can be both less formal and more collaborative, saving time and money for all parties involved. Resolution may come by negotiation and settlement, mediation, arbitration or through a creative combination of these techniques.

Arbitration is a simplified version of a trial involving no discovery and simplified rules of evidence. Arbitrations proceed pursuant to the arbitration agreement between the parties and the decision is made by the arbitrator(s) selected by the parties.

Mediation is an even less formal alternative to litigation. Mediators are individuals trained in negotiation who bring opposing parties together and attempt to work out a settlement or agreement acceptable to both parties.
