Alternative dispute resolution

We can help you settle your issue with alternative dispute resolution, both collaborative and adversarial.

Out-of-court mechanisms for settling disputes are so effective that courts often require parties to pursue these processes before or during litigation. Not only can they be more cost effective and quicker, but they can reduce the strain of a court process.

Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, encompasses many ways of addressing and settling disputes outside of traditional adversarial litigation. We have a deep understanding of the pros and cons of each type of ADR and, based on your needs, we can advise you on the most appropriate direction to take.
