The growing use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques underlines that avoiding costly and time-consuming litigation is often what matters most to all sides of a dispute. That is why our ADR attorneys employ a range of alternative techniques for resolving disputes in a quick and cost-efficient manner. Our ADR team possesses decades of experience, both as attorneys and judges, in arbitration—whereby independent arbitrators adjudicate a dispute—and mediation—where a single independent mediator facilitates discussion and negotiation. Our practice is headed by Hon. Joel A. Pisano (ret.) formerly the United States District Court, District of New Jersey, who calls upon his experience in the efficient management of thousands of federal civil and criminal cases to skillfully bring disputes to resolution.
