Several RLR lawyers have considerable experience and specialized training in mediation and arbitration procedures, also sometimes referred to as “Alternative Dispute Resolution” or ADR.

A high percentage of civil disputes are resolved without going to trial. Therefore, at RLR we view being adept in ADR processes as a core competency for a successful law firm. The significant costs and delays inherent in the court system make ADR an increasingly valuable and important option for clients who wish to efficiently resolve disputes (particularly in the business context) and/or avoid the acrimony of an adversarial process (particularly in the family law area). Whatever the context, RLR lawyers can advise you about available ADR options relevant to your issue and assist you in developing effective strategies to achieve your objectives.
