Arbitration & Mediation

As advocates for our clients in arbitrations and mediations, we prepare for arbitration and mediation just as we prepare for trial, with one goal in mind: to get the best result possible for our clients.  In mediation, achieving that result means settling a case more favorably than proceeding with litigation.

Our clients will tell you that our ability to persuade mediators and the opposition stretches well beyond the jury box.  There is no mystery to successful outcomes in mediation— preparation is critical.  Once we have demonstrated the strength of our client’s case to the mediator and made clear our enthusiasm for taking a case to trial, settlements tend to follow.  If the adversary is stuck on an unreasonable position and will not get realistic, we prepare the case for trial.

We are also often appointed by courts or hired to serve as arbiters and mediators because we understand the dynamics of the process.  We also understand the law.  Combining the energy to delve deep into the facts of the case with the skills of persuasion puts us in a position to convince parties to settle the cases we mediate.  Our commitment to fairness and faith in the process allows us to be unbiased and enter just rulings in arbitrations, without undue delay.
