Alternative Dispute Resolution (Litigation)

Effective dispute resolution in a non-judicial forum requires no less knowledge or skill than traditional litigation. BIS have represented scores of clients at arbitration involving construction and commercial/business matters. Before a panel or a single arbitrator, in matters complex or not, we skillfully try cases. Our experience in arbitration processes enables us to obtain the maximum of the benefits that arbitration offers: a swift, efficient trial in a private proceeding before relevant industry professionals. Not only are BIS attorneys experienced in all of the major arbitration association rules and procedures (including the American Arbitration Association and JAMS), they serve as arbitrators, as well.

BIS attorneys are also certified mediators. The vast majority of disputes are settled, which puts a premium on the ability to settle well. Having tried many cases in federal and state courts, with and without juries, we know how to evaluate cases and assess the risk and costs of litigation to verdict. BIS’s senior counsel have the essentials for successful mediation guidance. All are learned negotiators, subject matter experts, and “trial-to-verdict” experienced.
