Several of our civil litigators have formal training and certification as mediators for complex business, intellectual property, employment, and other cases pending in state or federal courts, and arbitral and administrative tribunals. They assist parties and their counsel in non-binding mediations in an effort to reach out-of-court resolutions and enduring settlements. Such matters range from two-party disputes to multi-party cases and class actions, regardless of their stage in the litigation process. Some of our greatest successes have been in matters brought to us for mediated resolution even before litigation has been filed. We customize the mediation process to optimize the chances of the parties achieving a mutually acceptable and durable resolution, while helping them avoid the costs, risks and uncertainty of litigation.
