Litigation can be costly, time-consuming, and unpredictable. Depending on your circumstances, alternative dispute resolution may be an advisable alternative to litigation. Arbitration and mediation allow parties to keep costs at a minimum, and they often allow parties to have their disputes resolved more quickly than typical litigation.
In arbitration, the parties agree to have a knowledgeable and neutral third-party arbitrator conduct a hearing and decide their dispute. In mediation, the parties work together with a neutral third-party mediator to reach an agreeable resolution of their dispute. Because these alternative dispute resolution mechanisms are a product of the parties’ agreement, the rules governing them can be more flexible, more efficient, and more closely-tailored to the parties and their particular issues.
The attorneys at the Sugarman Law Firm have a wealth of knowledge and experience in alternative dispute resolution. They can help you decide whether alternative dispute resolution is right for you and, if so, handle all aspects of the process, from selecting the arbitrator or mediator, to representing your interests at the arbitration or mediation, to implementing the arbitrator’s decision or the parties’ agreement. Let us help guide you through the process and obtain an agreeable outcome.
Additionally, our senior attorneys are available to serve as mediators or arbitrators to help parties resolve their disputes out of Court.
