Alternative Dispute Resolution

Rossway Swan considers the use of alternative dispute resolution to be an integral part of the practice of law and the guidance that we provide to our clients. Litigation can prove time consuming and become costly, and may not be the best means to effectively press and economically resolve disputes. Even a courtroom win at trial may not be the best resolution to the dispute or matter. Although our firm enjoys an impressive record of courtroom achievements, Rossway Swan’s lawyers seek to optimize case outcomes while managing the costs, time and stress of a lawsuit. Our attorneys evaluate the most appropriate and effective strategies to reach clients’ goals. The firm’s litigation attorneys routinely use arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as pragmatic ways to meet our clients’ needs.

What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?

Alternative dispute resolution refers to several potential processes that can be utilized to resolve claims, disputes or conflicts. Alternative dispute resolution is an alternative to a courtroom trial and can be deployed to resolve disputes in all areas of law including, family law and divorce, probate and trust disputes, real estate disputes and business disputes.

Why Use Alternative Dispute Resolution?

Alternative dispute resolution can provide several advantages for clients. For many clients and disputes, alternative dispute resolution can be cheaper and more cost effective. In addition, the dispute can often be resolved faster than traditional litigation while providing more control over the outcome of the dispute as alternative dispute resolution is more flexible than the trial court. There are many instances where by contract or other legal requirements make alternative dispute resolution mandatory.
