Litigation Alternatives facilitates and administers Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures through the use of mediators and arbitrators mutually agreed upon by all parties. While our highly qualified and experienced “House Mediators” handle most of our caseload, we are committed to the concept of “mutual agreement” and therefore offer alternative hearing officer selection methodology.
Accordingly, there is a list of our attorney firm clients with whom we have worked that parties can refer to with the understanding that the attorneys who are members of those firms are usually willing and able to act as additional Mediator or Arbitrator choices. The list is under our the heading above as “Choosing Alternative Mediators.”
We have also developed a short list of some of the younger and “up and coming” members of the bar with whom we have had experience and believe to have the knowledge and temperament to become the mediators of the future. These candidates are also on the link above.
Once a mediator or arbitrator has been agreed upon and all ground rules established, our “Case Managers” process and schedule all cases as quickly as possible within the parameters of all parties’ schedules.
