Alternative Dispute Resolution is oftentimes preferred by savvy leaders of organizations and businesses over a lawsuit that can drain resources – including money, time, and focus.  Being involved in a slow-moving lawsuit is one way to get off-track from your organization's primary focus, unless you are a trial lawyer.

ADR includes several categories of frameworks designed to resolve disputes outside of court.  Instead of waiting years for a judge to decide something that neither party may be happy with, the parties can sit at the table and attempt to reach an agreement with the guidance of  a mediator, or consider arbitration if an impasse exists on one or more issues.

ADR Advantages Over Litigation

  • Court dockets are clogged, and it may take years to achieve a final resolution on your case
  • A court-based process is more expensive.  Litigation costs can get out of control.
  • Efficiently resolving disputes allows your organization or business to lessen the impact of the conflict, minimize distractions, and focus on the organization's main goals.
  • ADR options, such as mediation, allow the parties to maintain much more control over the process and have more of an impact on the outcome.
  • Private – resolve your case confidentially, not in open court.
  • Fashion creative and flexible solutions that may not be available in the traditional court setting.
  • ADR helps preserve relationships, lower hostilities, and avoid future conflict.

ADR can be used to resolve almost any type of case, including:

  • Employment
  • Non-compete disagreements
  • Partnership and Dissolution
  • Consumer Disputes
  • Real Estate Matters
  • Landlord/Tenant
  • Creditor Issues
