Clients increasingly demand that lawyers evaluate whether alternative dispute resolution would yield betters results than litigation. Employment, credit card, commercial and other contracts now abound with mandatory arbitration clauses. What does arbitration look like and how is it different than going to court? Mediation may present an attractive and cost effective alternative to mediation. What happens at mediation and how will it help resolve your dispute? What are the different kinds of mediation and what might be best for your client? What standards of conduct govern mediators and arbitrators?
