Alternative Dispute Resolution
In addition to representing our clients in the courtroom, we also represent clients in alternative dispute resolution process, such as arbitration and mediations. Oftentimes, the parties to a given dispute have already agreed to arbitrate or mediate by contract. Other times, the parties will, by advice of counsel, the court, or otherwise, agree to arbitration or mediation. Arbitration and mediation can be, but is not always, a more cost-efficient way to resolve a business dispute. Our commercial litigation attorneys in Chicago will provide aggressive and careful advice, whether it is in court, through arbitration, or at the mediation table.
