Several of Clyde Snow’s attorneys are experienced in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) including mediation, arbitration, and collaborative law. They use ADR when it is in the best interest of the client or when it is required as part of ongoing litigation. The majority of ADR cases are commercial contracts, business torts, or family law matters.
ADR is often a viable option for business and commercial disputes including commercial contracts and business torts. In some cases, commercial or business contracts require arbitration; in other cases, it may be possible to agree to arbitration or mediation. The benefits of using ADR often include a quicker resolution, and, in most cases, less contention.
ADR is commonly used in domestic disputes. Often required prior to traditional litigation, ADR proves more efficient, economical, and civil. At Clyde Snow, attorneys are experienced in using ADR (mediation and collaborative law) for divorce and other family law matters.
A number of the firm’s attorneys have acted as arbitrators and mediators in ADR proceedings. In addition to their vast experience, these attorneys have received special training to assist parties in resolving disputes.
