Saving Time And Money Through Alternative Dispute Resolution

Nothing can be more damaging to a business's bottom line than a lawsuit that goes to court. Business law attorney Ronald Mullin is a trained, experienced mediation professional who can help you and the opposing party find points of agreement as you work toward resolving the matter out of court. Mediation is a nonbinding solution that guides parties toward effective solutions. If the matter is already in court, a final settlement agreement between parties may be presented to the court to make the agreement an order of the court.

Arbitration is another way to resolve disputes out of court. Both parties agree to an independent arbitrator to make a decision regarding the case. In certain circumstances at the request of the parties, the arbitrator may also serve in a consulting role to explain the legal issues and help steer negotiations. The parties present their final evidence and the arbitrator makes a decision on the case, rendering an arbitration award. If the parties have agreed to binding arbitration, the arbitrator's final decision may be presented as the court judgment. In nonbinding arbitration, either party may use the arbitrator's decision as guidance to determine whether to pursue further action in court.
