We're known for our courtroom experience, but we also have a keen appreciation of the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

Over the course of many decades, Herrick lawyers have provided arbitration, negotiation and mediation services in disputes involving a broad range of industries and areas of the law. We're well versed in the rules and procedures of the leading arbitration institutions in the U.S. and abroad, and many of our lawyers have served as arbitrators themselves.

Informing our ADR practice is our substantial experience implementing early case assessment programs, which provide realistic assessments of the many paths a litigation may take. Through rigorous analysis and planning, we can often develop practical ways to resolve such disputes, without engaging in extensive and costly litigation. We also frequently draw on our deep corporate experience to draft mediation and arbitration clauses designed to avoid litigation, and protect our clients’ interests in future proceedings.
