Arbitration and Mediation
Also called “Alternative Dispute Resolution” or “ADR”, Arbitration and Mediation proceedings are alternative methods to attempt to resolve a legal dispute. Arbitration generally is a process selected by parties in a contract in which the parties agree to submit to the jurisdiction of an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators with the decision being binding and final as if obtained in a court of law. In mediation, the parties to a dispute agree to meet with a mutually chosen mediator, present their side of the case, and consider the recommendations of the mediator in an effort to settle the matter in a non-binding setting. In either type of proceeding, the principal benefits are a quick and more cost-effective avenue to resolve a legal dispute. Some of the areas we have conducted these proceedings include:
The attorneys of Chapman Law Group, PLC have conducted innumerable arbitrations and mediations, of both domestic and international issues, before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the International Center for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), as well as before privately chosen arbitrators and mediators. Our attorneys have also been chosen by other attorneys and parties to mediate disputes.
