Alternative Dispute Resolution

Experienced Counsel for Mediation and Arbitration in Florida

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), particularly mediation, is a requirement in virtually all litigation. When conducted at the right time, with the right preparation and strategy, mediation can achieve a more predictable and cost-effective resolution of a dispute than other forms of dispute resolution. Our attorneys have guided clients through hundreds of mediations.  That experience allows us to bring unique strategies, effective presentation methods, and creative negotiation skills to the table to help our client make sound business decisions about their cases.

In addition to advocating for clients at mediation, Jeff Paskert and Brett Divers, are Florida Supreme Circuit Court certified mediators, serve as neutral third-party mediators in select cases. Messrs. Paskert and Divers have substantial experience in mediation—both as advocates and as third-party neutrals—in the areas listed below. If you need a skilled mediator for a complex business dispute in Florida, we invite you to speak with one of our mediators about your case.

Our lawyers also represent clients in arbitration proceedings. Whether contractually-mandated or pursued voluntarily, arbitration can be a cost-effective tool for resolving business disputes. While there are some similarities to courtroom litigation, arbitration is intended to serve as a comparatively streamlined proceeding designed to reduce the costs of dispute resolution while also shortening the overall timeline. We have extensive experience representing a wide range of clients in arbitration proceedings.
