Arbitration/Mediation

In an increasingly litigious society, a growing number of businesses and industries are seeking relief from the high costs of litigation.  While litigation cannot be avoided in all situations, Berliner Cohen has been successful in achieving early case resolution for clients involved in significant matters by using sophisticated and varied alternative dispute resolution methods.  These methods range from an informal negotiation to a more structured mediation, arbitration, or a moderated settlement conference.

There is a great deal of creativity involved in resolving a dispute through arbitration or mediation, and the techniques our attorneys employ are different from those used in the courtroom.  In addition to serving as advocates for our clients in alternative dispute resolution methods, our attorneys are frequently retained as mediators or arbitrators by opposing litigants to enable them to resolve their disputes outside the courtroom.
