[edit] Viewpoint: Arbitration

Arbitration is the increasingly-popular alternative to court. Arbitrations are private and confidential and result in binding decisions. The arbitrator will have subject-matter expertise and the process will be designed to meet the needs of the parties. They are less formal than court and can be scheduled at times that are convenient for lawyers and their clients.

[edit] Regular Arbitration

The ADR Chambers Arbitration Rules set out a clear and organized process for the conduct of an arbitration. The ADR Chambers team of professionals includes lawyers who administer the arbitration. They work with the lawyers to select the arbitrator, finalize the Agreement to Arbitrate, determine the rules and procedures for the arbitration, and schedule the pre-arbitration conferences.

[edit] Expedited Arbitration

ADR Chambers Expedited Arbitration is designed for people who want a fast and inexpensive arbitration. Expedited arbitrations are fixed fee arbitrations (less than $6,000 per party including taxes and room fee) with strict time frames and limitations on number of documents, length of briefs and time for the hearing. The process takes less than 90 days from the appointment of the arbitrator to the issuance of the award, and there is only one hearing day.

The arbitrator will not have the discretion to extend timeframes, or increase page limits or number of documents except in extraordinary circumstances (as set out in the Rules) or on consent.

[edit] Viewpoint: Mediation

Mediation is facilitated negotiation. The Mediator is a neutral who helps disputants settle their dispute.

Mediators assist disputants to find their own result – one that’s acceptable to the parties. If asked, the mediators will also give an opinion about the likely outcome of a dispute in court. Most disputes that are mediated by ADR Chambers mediators result in settlement.

Many ADR Chambers mediators are trained by the Stitt Feld Handy Group and employ the latest mediator techniques.

If you are looking for an expert opinion about the likely outcome in court, you may wish to hire a retired judge for a Neutral Evaluation.
