Resolving Business Disputes

Minimizing the impact of litigation
Successful litigation requires zealous representation. Although I represent my clients zealously, I recognize that litigation is expensive and distracting, and lawsuits can expose a business to large damage awards and harmful publicity. Therefore, when appropriate, I do not disregard the logic, cost effectiveness, and possible preference for exploring and pursuing pre-litigation strategies, alternate methods of dispute resolution, and expeditious and practical settlement strategies.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution can avoid court costs.The use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has become very popular for many reasons including the ones enumerated above. Mediation and arbitration are forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In mediation, mediators attempt to facilitate reconciliation between or among the parties. Arbitration more closely resembles litigation. In arbitration, arbitrators, as opposed to judges and juries, act as neutral third parties to hear the evidence and decide the case. Their decisions can be binding or non-binding. Although ADR can save all parties time and expense, there are disadvantages to ADR. ADR is not appropriate for all types of disputes. I help businesses and professional practices plan for, and navigate through, the ADR process.
