Are you in a dispute? You have choices. Litigation is not the only option. Disputes
are ultimately resolved in one of two ways:  by agreement of the parties or  by
decision of some third party – a judge or arbitrator. Parties involved in litigation
generally experience loss of control, lack of predictability, frustration with time
delays, costs far exceeding expectations and disappointing outcomes. 98% of all
litigation ends in settlement, following an expensive, divisive, narrowing process.
Dispute resolution-by-agreement, pursues settlement through direct, focused and disciplined approaches, with
the parties as the ultimate decision-makers about their own interests. Pursuing resolution-by-agreement offers
the following benefits for clients:
- Keeping control of the “rules” of the process - venue, speed, discovery, experts, etc.
- Management of resources – the costs, the $$$$
- Limiting the downside – distraction, stress and lost opportunities
- Preserving relationships
- Maintaining privacy
- Offering more options – solutions to problems that a court could never order under law
