Avoid Litigation with Alternative Dispute Resolution

Business handshake to seal a dealAlternative dispute resolution allows those involved in a business dispute to resolve their issues outside of the court system. This is often less costly and less time-consuming than litigation and offers clients more privacy since the dispute is kept out of the public eye. Avoiding litigation may also increase your chance of salvaging your business relationship after the dispute has been resolved.



Mediation involves an impartial third party, or mediator, who intervenes in the dispute to help both sides reach an agreement. The mediator does not represent either party, but instead works with both parties to develop a mutually agreeable settlement. The mediator encourages communication between the parties to help them resolve the dispute as amicably as possible and avoid litigation. At Chane Socarras, PLLC our experienced business attorneys can act as a mediator in your dispute to help resolve the issue quickly and efficiently in a way that satisfies both parties.



Like mediation, arbitration involves a neutral third party, or arbitrator, who will intervene in a business dispute. However, unlike a mediator, an arbitrator will make a decision on behalf of both parties. In the case on non-binding arbitration, the parties may reject the arbitrator’s decision and choose to go to trial. In the case of binding arbitration, both parties agree before arbitration begins that they will accept the arbitrator’s decision. At Chane Socarras, PLLC our experienced business attorneys can assist with your arbitration by helping you choose and arbitrator and providing you with legal guidance, or serving as your arbitrator to resolve the dispute.
