ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Mediation and collaborative law can be less expensive and more expeditious ways to resolve disputes in a manner that preserves relationships, civility and privacy while achieving mutually satisfactory results. When outcomes cannot be reached by agreement, arbitration offers an economical and private alternative to litigation. Our skilled Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) attorneys have a combined 80 years of knowledge and practice experience. We provide dispute resolution services to a wide range of parties including individuals, families, trusts and estates, real property owners, developers, lenders, landlords and tenants, professionals, business owners, partnerships and corporations. Socius ADR gets results without all the costs—financial and otherwise.
We broker solutions privately and efficiently. Our substantive knowledge of the law and decades of practice experience add informed perspective that allows us to quickly earn the trust of the participants, understand the parties’ inherent interests and assess their tolerance for risk. Guiding the process with impartiality, compassion and respect for the differing viewpoints and stakes of those involved, we facilitate durable agreements by identifying often-overlooked areas of consensus and maximizing opportunities for trade-offs.
Trial is an expensive, time-consuming and difficult process. Often the decision maker has not had significant experience in the substantive area of law at issue. Our arbitrators have extensive knowledge and experience in their areas of expertise.
In the collaborative law process, the parties and their respective lawyers work together, sometimes with other professionals, in a series of meetings in order to reach a settlement that best meets their specific needs without the underlying threat of litigation. Socius ADR offers collaborative law services in matrimonial law.
