Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
In some cases, courts order the parties to enter into some sort of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). It is crucial that you have an experienced lawyer familiar with the different forms of ADR available.
Some industries have contracts that mandate arbitration for their business disputes. Arbitration is like a trial. A neutral party hears the evidence and issues a decision. If the parties have agreed in advance, the arbitrator's ruling is final and binding on all parties, with few grounds to overturn it in court.
Arbitration is faster and cheaper than a full-blown court trial in resolving business disputes. But it is best to have an experienced lawyer at all stages of the proceeding to protect your interests.
Mediation also uses a neutral third party to guide the process. But a mediator's job is not to make a decision, but to guide the parties toward an agreement in their business dispute. If you can't reach a settlement agreement on at least some issues, the mediation is over. In mediation, you will benefit from a skilled attorney who can present your evidence in the most effective way possible to get the results you seek.
We handle appeals in the state and federal courts in Illinois and elsewhere. We will defend your favorable outcome on appeal. There is no need to transfer the case to separate appellate counsel.
