Our lawyers have proven records of success as trial and appellate counsel. The Firm recognizes, however, that the best result for our clients is achieving litigation goals early, with reduced expense. Where appropriate, the Firm is committed to the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and we have substantial experience and expertise in this area. Our lawyers have arbitrated scores of matters, including before the AAA, JAMS, ICDR, ICC, NAM, and FINRA, and have also been selected to serve as party neutral arbitrators. In addition, our lawyers counsel clients on the implementation of ADR programs in their business practices.
Our lawyers are expert in the arbitration process and adept at developing compelling strategies and arguments that effectively advance our clients’ positions. We strive to do so in the most efficient manner possible to ensure that our clients fully recognize the cost benefits that arbitration often offers. Some of our recent or more notable engagements in arbitration have included the following:
While our lawyers are always prepared to try cases, and trials are one of the most professionally rewarding aspects of our practice, we are pragmatists who recognize that clients’ interests are most often best served by favorable resolutions that allow them to avoid the cost and uncertainties of litigation, trials, and appeals. The Firm has mediated to successful resolution countless matters and pre-suit claims. Our expertise in leveraging clients’ positions and developing creative, sensible solutions has led clients to trust us to mediate their most sensitive cases and claims, including portfolios of cases and claims pending or threatened in multiple jurisdictions.
