Gardere embraces the cost-effectiveness of alternative dispute resolution techniques to help our clients avoid major litigation proceedings. Gardere lawyers work with our transactional attorneys to help draft ADR contract provisions that give clients various options in the event disputes occur. Our litigation attorneys maximize results of ADR by preserving business relationships wherever possible through mediated settlements. Our ADR practice draws on the talents of lawyers throughout the Firm to form effective teams with our clients to take advantage of this growing area of legal practice. Effective conflict management is a critical tool of corporate legal departments, and our team is sensitive to our clients’ business requirements. We are committed to helping our clients craft intelligent and creative solutions to their disputes.
A number of Gardere litigation attorneys are expert in serving as arbitrators and mediators with an in depth understanding of the process that serves as a value add to our clients. We have represented clients in arbitrations and mediations throughout the United States and abroad and in a wide range of domestic and international business, intellectual property, employment, insurance coverage, construction and consumer disputes.
Mediation is an integral part of the litigation process and is a viable option in many cases before going to court. A number of Gardere attorneys serve as court appointed mediators which help when those lawyers assist clients in other their mediations. Our attorneys are experienced in the techniques of effective mediation and the development of a mediation strategy with the client to achieve the client’s goals. We understand that mediation is more than simply market haggling; we analyze the personal dynamics of their opposing part and their business or personal goals for litigation to take advantage of the opponent's weaknesses and predilections.
Gardere’s international clientele and practice have provided experience in the methods of conciliation. While it is a particularly client driven ADR, we provide case analysis and best/worst case legal scenarios to assist clients in the evaluation of their respective positions, strengths and weaknesses in order to achieve the best possible result from conciliation.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
