Alternative Dispute Resolution
When litigation is not the best solution for a commercial dispute, our lawyers are experienced in advising and leading clients through alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR provides the opportunity to resolve disputes in an expeditious and economical fashion. The Group’s experience with ADR includes handling matters before private arbitrators, binding and non binding mediation, state and federal court mini-trials, proceedings before the American Arbitration Association and the International Chamber of Commerce, as well as other non-traditional forums. Several of the firm’s lawyers frequently serve as arbitrators and mediators themselves.
We are always conscious of costs, the avoidance of delay, and the need for confidentiality, and we advise our clients accordingly. While ADR methods may not always be available or suitable, ADR is an important consideration in most commercial disputes. The attorneys at Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote will not only suggest and implement appropriate ADR options, but also take a proactive approach to drafting commercial agreements that specifically delineate where and how disputes are to be resolved.

As a direct result of our years of counsel both in and out of the courtroom, we effectively and successfully advocate on behalf of commercial entities, and guide our clients to the best possible results.
