Alternative Dispute Resolution
ispute resolution processes are alternatives to having a state or federal judge or jury decide the dispute in a trial. The most common forms of dispute resolution include mediation and arbitration.
Dispute resolution processes have several advantages. Many dispute resolution processes are cheaper and faster than the traditional legal process. They can provide the parties involved with greater participation in reaching a solution, as well as more control over the outcome of the dispute. In addition, dispute resolution processes are less formal and have more flexible rules than the trial court.
Essential to an effective dispute resolution process is a fair, impartial and experienced mediator. The ability of a mediator to effectively evaluate the lawsuit provides a reality test for participants who are unsure about the value of the case or are unwilling to listen to the reasoning of the other side or even their own attorney.
Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, boasts a cadre of top-notch mediators. With their vast litigation experience, they bring an ability to quickly evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each party's case.
