Many times a legal dispute is resolved or even tried outside of the court system through a process known as alternative dispute resolution (ADR). As part of Langley & Banack’s extensive civil litigation practice, their attorneys regularly represent clients in arbitrations, mediations and other forms of ADR. The Firm’s litigation section is constantly asked to advise clients on the appropriateness, timing and pros and cons of the use of various ADR methods and procedures to help position a case toward a successful resolution and/or result. Due to several members of the Firm having additional experience in serving as an arbitrator and/or a mediator in legal disputes, the Firm has a unique perspective on how to most effectively present cases in an ADR setting. Langley & Banack’s reputation in the courtroom and through ADR is a significant advantage for the Firm in handling legal disputes in mediation or arbitration.
