FULL SPECTRUM ADR SERVICES

Delivering the Solutions You Want

The personal and individualized features of ADR provides the party autonomy necessary to streamline the dispute resolution process by removing unnecessary requirements, shortening timelines, and limiting excessive disclosures.  As a result, our alternative dispute resolution programs typically result in a faster process than the courts. In fact, several of our arbitration programs are over 16 months shorter than the national average for litigation. This can result in significant cost savings.

THE ADR ADVANTAGE

Giving You Control Over Your Future

Unlike litigation, alternative dispute resolution’s private nature gives parties the opportunity to exercise control over the way their dispute is resolved.  Parties select the most appropriate decision-maker for their dispute, as well as the applicable laws, place and language of the proceedings, and even the process and procedures. Furthermore, unlike court, ADR proceedings can be totally confidential, protecting your privacy, trade secrets, and business matters.

PERSONALIZED

Privacy

Unlike open court, where all matters are available to the public, alternative dispute resolution allows parties to keep the proceedings and any results confidential. When matters are kept confidential, parties can focus on the merits of the dispute without the overarching concerns about public or personal impact, which may be of special importance where commercial reputations, trade secrets, financials, or personal private details are involved.

Flexibility

The foundation of ADR centers around applicabilty and appropriateness, and allows parties the freedom to create a dispute resolution process that meets their needs, rather than forcing mandatory processes like the courts.  Parties select their neutral third party, determine their procedural requirements, dictate the scope of the dispute, and set their own timelines.

Timeliness

When litigating a lawsuit, the parties must conform to the calendar of the court, which is consistently overbooked.  Disputes can take over a year before receiving a court date, and rescheduling matters takes weeks or months. Alternative dispute resolution puts the timelines and scheduling in the hands of the parties, and they are even free to select a neutral that can meet their deadlines.  This is of significant value for expedited or urgent matters that require a speedy resolution.

Practicality

Due to its personalized nature, ADR allows the parties to determine the scope of their dispute, and even dictate the options for resolution.  Unlike judgements from the court, ADR awards and agreements are not bound by precedent, resulting in outcomes that are logical, practical, and implementable given the circumstances and the parties involved.  In addition, the informal nature of most processes also makes ADR more accessible and understandable to non-lawyers involved in the matter.

Cost Control

Because alternative dispute resolution processes are designed by the parties, they may choose to build in cost control mechanisms to minimize fees.  Parties may choose to expedite the process, limit disclosure, impose time limits on mediation or examination, and eliminate unnecessary procedures to manage the costs of proceedings.  The finality of alternative dispute resolution outcomes also eliminates the future costs of multiple appeals that occur in the court system.

Ambrosia was invaluable in assisting with a recent harassment issue. Her advice was always focussed on addressing the root problems in a practical way, and saved us from future problems.  She was honest and upfront when highlighting our gaps and I’d highly recommend the firm for any HR or employment issues and plan on using them for any similar situations in the future.
