Arbitration, Mediation and Other Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods

Moses & Singer’s success in representing clients in alternative dispute resolution proceedings (“ADR”) results from our integrated team of trial lawyers, transactional attorneys and experienced arbitrators/mediators, who bring their courtroom experience, industry knowledge, and extensive experience with ADR practice together to serve our clients.  Our team helps clients achieve the primary goals of ADR (including preserving confidentiality, prompt dispute resolution and expense control) while optimizing the likelihood of successful outcomes.

Broad Scope of our ADR Practice

Our ADR practice covers employment, bankruptcy, technology, outsourcing, healthcare, securities, construction, and other commercial and family law matters.  Many of our successful results are discussed in specific industry or practice area sections of our website. The size of our ADR group, and the many practice areas covered, enable us to properly staff client ADR projects, including with multi-disciplinary teams when needed.  Our experience goes beyond effective advocacy to resolve actual disputes.  We pay particular attention when drafting contracts to crafting effective ADR provisions with an eye toward likely potential disputes.  

Application of ADR to class-action situations, the proliferation of specialized ADR tribunals and organizations, the evolution of tech platforms, particularly in response to COVID, and other developments have produced a multitude of new and complex ADR procedural rules. Our group is experienced in dealing with these and effectively presenting cases using virtual platforms. Our industry knowledge, particularly in healthcare, outsourcing and tech, is often invaluable to provide information to frame the context and background of the dispute for the arbitration panel.   

Our Experience as Arbitrators Informs our ADR Practice

A number of our lawyers actively serve as party-appointed or neutral arbitrators in ADR proceedings.  Two of our lawyers are internationally named as leading arbitrators and mediators in technology, IT, and outsourcing disputes by one or more of Chambers, the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution, and the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center (“SVAMC”).  One of our lawyers has been elected to the “List of the World’s Leading Technology Neutrals [Arbitrators],” which is administered by the SVAMC and is an invitation-only, peer-reviewed ranking, and is also a Director of SVAMC. Our experience as arbitrators and mediators informs our advocacy for our clients.  It provides us insights into how arbitrators approach disputes, respond to briefing, and evaluate evidence presented by party and expert witnesses. 

Drafting Arbitration Provisions and Forum Selection

That experience as arbitrators and mediators, and our industry expertise, also informs our drafting of contractual ADR provisions to give our clients greater control of the timing, complexity, and expense of the proceedings, to protect their competitive edge against unwarranted disclosure of sensitive business plans and technology, and to make available remedies that might be hard to obtain in formal legal proceedings.   We often integrate ADR with pre-ADR contractual dispute resolution procedures, particularly for clients in long-term agreements with multiple parties and complex ongoing interactions. Our ADR team tailors arbitration provisions to address the risks in a specific transaction while leveraging industry practices and minimizing potential abuse of the ADR process by other contract parties.

Our attorneys appear before the AAA, JAMS, FINRA and various other domestic and also international tribunals, and are experienced in all areas of ADR, including mediation, conciliation, non-binding and binding arbitration before special masters, lawyers, technical specialists and business executives, mini-trials, simulated jury trials, and internal arbitral appeals under tribunal rules.  We advise clients on the selection and navigation of the most appropriate ADR forums and processes to protect their interests, whether as claimants or respondents.
