Litigation is a last resort but often necessary in complex and other cases. Whether utilizing the public courts or a private judge, we bring sound judgment with an appropriate aggressive edge to our commercial litigation actions. Even after litigation commences, the ultimate goal is an appropriate settlement which often occurs after interim issues are resolved.
Settlement/Non-Litigation is the preferred resolution and the majority of cases settle through the use of various processes, most of which are described below.
Arbitration is the voluntary or contractual submission of a matter in dispute to the non-judicial judgment of one or more neutral, third parties, called arbitrators, whose decision, called an award, is in most cases binding upon the parties.
Mediation involves a neutral, third party who attempts to arrange a settlement between the disagreeing parties.
Private Judges are an attractive option for clients who require confidentiality or a more speedy trial process. Private Judges administer private trials, which most resemble court out of the many alternative dispute resolution proceedings.
