Mediation & Arbitration
There are alternatives to litigation, and we represents client in both mediation and arbitration proceedings. A referral to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is regularly a part of a Case Management Order issued by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri and other state and federal courts and tribunals.
We have participated in mediations and handled arbitrations for employment, commercial, real estate and corporate disputes. During the mediation and arbitration process, just the same as during litigation settlement negotiations, experienced attorneys with a solid perspective of the law, facts and liability assessment provide a leg up needed to persevere in a client’s position. While no guaranty of outcome can be predicted, being prepared with the right team to represent you is an important foundation for resolution.
We can also assist out-of-state counsel as local counsel and in the selection of an arbitrator or mediator in the St. Louis and southern Illinois metropolitan areas.
