ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ADR)
While litigation at times is necessary, it may not always be the best option. The attorneys at Schnitzer Johnson & Watson employ various strategies in order to make sophisticated recommendations to clients based on what’s best for their business, whether that involves litigation, settlement, or another form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
Attorneys in this practice area are fully trained in ADR procedures and are often selected to serve as arbitrators, mediators and neutrals in both trial and appeals courts. ADR offers numerous advantages, including the negotiation and resolution of disputes in a private vs. public forum, and more informal proceedings and expedited conclusions of disputes. ADR can result in reduced legal fees and expenses for our clients.
Schnitzer Johnson & Watson has also developed related clauses for contracts and agreements, some standard, and some tailored to specific industries and situations. We also have experience drafting ADR clauses in relation to joint ventures, franchise agreements, organizational documents and business transactions, among others.
