Litigation isn’t always (or even usually) the best way to solve a problem. Usually, arbitration and mediation can lead to settlements for less money, in less time, and with better terms. Our lawyers are seasoned negotiators who can help you explore and fashion creative ways to resolve disputes without engaging in extensive and costly litigation. Our ADR practice is headed by Milton Mollen, formerly the Presiding Justice of the New York State Appellate Division, Second Department, and an active and respected arbitrator and mediator. Judge Mollen established the New York City office of JAMS, the largest private ADR provider in the world.
Herrick also has substantial experience with early case assessment programs. We pride ourselves on being able to provide realistic assessments that anticipate the variety of paths that a litigation may take. We can help you develop a practical and cost-effective plan that is sensitive to your culture and responsive to your needs.
