When litigation is not the appropriate course of action, Herrick lawyers are prepared to discuss the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) with our clients and to propose a plan tailored to their needs. We provide arbitration, negotiation and mediation services in disputes involving a broad range of industries and areas of the law. We are 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.

Through rigorous analysis and planning, we can often develop practical ways to resolve 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 to protect our clients’ interests in future proceedings.
