Alternative Dispute Resolution Options
Not all business disagreements have to be solved within the traditional court process. A variety of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options may be available to you, including mediation and arbitration. These approaches minimize time and expense.
In mediation, a neutral third party known as a mediator works with the disputing parties. The mediator helps the parties seek a mutually satisfactory outcome.
It is helpful to have an attorney by your side to make sure that the proposed resolution makes sense for you and your business. If a resolution cannot be reached, it is still possible to go to court.
Arbitration, on the other hand, is conducted with a neutral third party known as an arbitrator. The arbitrator, or a panel of arbitrators, takes on the role of a judge and conducts a hearing. During the arbitration, you can call witnesses and present evidence. It is beneficial to have a lawyer’s help when preparing and presenting your case.
Potential Results in Corporate Litigation and ADR
A variety of remedies can be sought in business litigation, though they are most often monetary ones. Our skilled attorneys will work to determine the value of the claim and limit your liability. Some common forms of relief available in corporate and commercial litigation include:
- Compensatory damages
- Liquidated damages
- Consequential or special damages
- Punitive damages
- Attorneys’ fees
