The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Group works with clients outside of a courtroom with experience through the courts and the American Arbitration Association. The group has attorneys trained in two primary forms of ADR: mediation and arbitration. In these two forms, Kennerly Montgomery’s ADR attorneys can serve as a mediator to facilitate an agreement between the parties or as a member of an arbitration panel to decide disputes. When not serving as a mediator or arbitrator, our members also serve as counsel to parties involved in both dispute resolution mechanisms.
In mediation, the parties—by agreement or court order—meet with a mediator who assists to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of their disputes. Usually, mediation is non-binding, with costs paid by the parties.
In arbitration, the parties—by agreement or court order—present evidence concerning their dispute to one or three arbitrators, who then decide the dispute for the parties. Arbitration is usually binding with the costs paid as agreed by the parties or ordered by the arbitrators.
