Negotiation, mediation, and arbitration are among the methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in which DWW excels. Our lawyers have considerable experience in resolving joint venture partnership and shareholder disputes, or disputes in the areas of technology development and implementation, outsourcing, commerce, and ownership and infringement of intellectual property. We not only represent parties involved in ADR, but also provide a highly effective service as mediators and arbitrators.
ADR can be an effective alternative to litigation. We seek to optimize outcomes for our client by managing the costs, time and stress of a lawsuit. Our lawyers evaluate the most appropriate and effective strategies to reach clients’ goals. The benefits of arbitration when compared to litigation include: confidentiality, a faster result, and more control of the process for the parties involved, including the ability to choose a decision-maker who has specialized legal or technical experience.
