Alternative Dispute Resolution offers clients a more cost efficient solution to resolving disputes than typical litigation proceedings. Disputes are resolved out of the courts which minimizes publicity, reduces overall hostility on the part of both parties, proves less harmful to business relationships, provides a greater likelihood of consistent and objective results and there is less chance of large verdicts of the type a jury might award. The ADR method is open, which allows disputing parties who engage in ADR to have more control over the ultimate outcome. ADR proceedings can be confidential; there is no public record as with litigation.
Among the ADR techniques Keane & Bernheimer, PLLC, employs are:
- Arbitration, as neutrals and as advocates
- Mediation, as neutrals and as advocates
