Our attorneys are experienced advocates in the ADR process, and employ this experience to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients. The Firm’s attorneys routinely represent clients in state and federal court mediations, and participate in ADR before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), the National Association of Securities Dealers (“NASD”), the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (“FMCS”) and other private ADR forums. Dinsmore attorneys also seek to lay ground work for the future use of ADR by drafting ADR contractual provisions and assisting clients in the implementation of such programs, thereby minimizing costs in the event of a later dispute. In addition, several attorneys have attended the mediation training programs at Harvard Law School and Pepperdine Law School. ADR methods are utilized across all practice areas within the firm, including the Corporate, Litigation, and Labor and Employment Departments.
Our attorneys are also experienced in serving as neutrals in arbitrations and mediations, including being listed on the AAA Panel List of Neutrals, and conducting work on behalf of ADR organizations including the National Arbitration Forum. This collective experience provides Dinsmore attorneys with the ability to achieve productive and prompt resolutions for our clients.
Dinsmore values and recognizes ADR as a means of resolving disputes in a cost-effective, expedient and equitable manner.
