Alternative Dispute Resolution

With burgeoning court queues and rising legal costs, many attorneys and courts are recommending that parties to a dispute pursue Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)—mediation, arbitration, and collaborative law—instead of traditional litigation. 

At DGC, our business consulting team includes professionals who are trained in the ADR disciplines, including serving on the American Arbitration Association’s (AAA), the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution’s (CPR) and FINRA’s (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) panels of neutrals.

Because we approach your case in a fair and neutral manner, our experienced ADR experts can facilitate a dispute resolution process that enables you to manage litigation costs and speed resolution in an efficient and effective manner.  

The members of our consulting team who are trained arbitrators have arbitrated numerous commercial disputes ranging in size from disagreements involving thousands of dollars, to disagreements involving hundreds of millions of dollars. Two of the members are on the American Arbitration Association’s panel of neutrals and one member is also on CPR’s panel of neutrals. Both have served as an arbitrator on various types of commercial and family law cases.

Working with attorneys and their clients we can:

  • Assist with mediation services for a wide range of commercial cases
  • Serve as sole arbitrator or as a member of an arbitration tribunal
  • Act as an expert witness for cases being arbitrated
  • Furnish financial expertise for cases using collaborative law
