Alternative Dispute Resolution

We have extensive experience with alternative dispute resolution, including complex arbitrations and mediations. We recognize that these proceedings require the same sort of advocacy that we bring to the courtroom as well as the negotiating skills we bring to our transactional practice. Our experience with these dispute resolution methods enables us to understand and advocate the particular objectives of our clients while striving to attain the clients’ objectives.

Mediation of Trust & Estate Issues

Sensitive family relationships occasionally result in disputes. With the expertise of a Board Certified estate planner who is also a qualified mediator, we have the expertise necessary to resolve issues regarding the interpretation, administration, and management of trusts and estates, as well as guardianships and fiduciary responsibility.

Representative Matters

We have represented our clients in complex commercial arbitrations in the manufacturing, construction and automotive industries, among others. We have also successfully mediated commercial cases involving intellectual property disputes, securities claims, banking and lending disputes, contract disputes, employment claims, environmental claims, and insurance coverage actions, as well as dozens of cases involving probate and trust disputes.
