Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has become increasingly more popular as a way for parties to resolve their disputes in a cost-conscious and time-effective manner. Our attorneys at the Strause Law Group, PLLC, have experience in both arbitration and mediation at the local and national levels.
Why Use Arbitration?
Parties rely on arbitration to resolve disputes for a variety of reasons. This approach allows parties to keep their legal matters private, protecting their businesses from the adverse publicity that can accompany litigation. As a result, many businesses and corporate entities are adding arbitration clauses to agreements with other parties.
During the arbitration process, a third party (arbitrator) will review the evidence presented by the parties and issue a decision on the merits. Arbitration is particularly useful with the resolution of complex matters where an arbitrator possessing the requisite expertise reviews the evidence before reaching a decision. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients in the arbitration of business disputes and health care claims before the American Arbitration Association.
The Benefits Of Mediation
Mediation is virtually used in every type of dispute, from family law matters to complex securities litigation, to facilitate a settlement between parties. While a neutral third party works with both parties to reach a resolution, it is the parties who make the decision, not a judge or jury. From our offices in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, we understand the benefits mediation offers and take advantage of it, when appropriate for our clients.
Our attorneys are experienced in negotiations and have represented both plaintiffs and defendants before local and national organizations. Our firm has found that mediation is useful in resolving claims concerning employment law disputes such as discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, breach of contract, retaliation and whistleblower claims. Our attorneys have also used mediation in the resolution of securities disputes.
