Alternative Dispute Resolution

Ward Greenberg attorneys frequently serve as neutrals, both in conducting mediations and serving as arbitrators. We also regularly handle mediations and arbitrations and use other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques on behalf of our clients. Our substantial experience serving as neutrals gives us a unique advantage when handling ADR matters for clients because we are able to leverage our experience from the neutral’s perspective, and appreciate and take advantage of the unique aspects of advocacy in mediation and arbitration to benefit our clients. In ADR matters, Ward Greenberg delivers exceptional value by combining, in a collaborative setting, our extensive trial experience with our significant experience serving as neutral.
