Arbitration, mediation, and other dispute resolution proceedings.
For a growing business, nothing is more stressful - or downright frightening - than the possibility of litigation. Contract disputes, disagreements, and misunderstandings can lead to years of litigation and costly legal fees. In turn, the business suffers and growth is stifled.
Is your business facing legal action? At Framework Legal, we help our clients stay out of court by pursuing alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as arbitration and mediation. Together, we can explore all of the options available to you to save time and money and protect your business.
Resolving disputes out of court is almost always the best option when a contract dispute or other issue arises.
Trials are expensive and can take months or years to get through the court system. Dispute resolution can save you a lot of time and money.
Dispute resolution proceedings like arbitration are private, which ensures you avoid public filings, public proceedings, and a trial. This protects your business's reputation and brand equity.
Working together with the other party to settle a dispute can result in an acceptable and beneficial outcome for both parties.
With binding arbitration, a settled dispute can no longer be brought to trial, eliminating further conflicts that may arise around the dispute.
If your business is under legal attack, it may be difficult to know where to turn. Do you need a heavy hitting litigation attorney? Or should you work with an attorney that understands your business and can craft a solution to overcome legal challenges to help you achieve your goals?
At Framework Legal, we understand that any legal action taken against your business - no matter how big or small - can negatively impact the value of your business and stand in the way of growth. We are not here to pick a fight or take a case to trial if it can be avoided. Rather, we search for amicable resolutions to business disputes so that your business interests are not only protected, but advanced through the process.
How can we accomplish this? Framework Legal assists clients in both arbitration and mediation, forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which are a wide variety of processes used to resolve any kind of dispute, claim, or conflict out of court.
Arbitration is sort of like a “mini trial,” where the arbitrator acts as a judge and makes a determination based on the facts and evidence of the case. There are two basic types of arbitration. In binding arbitration, the outcome of the case is final and both parties must agree to it no matter what. Whereas, non-binding arbitration allows the cause to be brought to trial if the outcome is unsatisfactory.
Mediation is similar, but distinct. In mediation, attorneys from our firm help to guide negotiations between both parties to reach a settlement or decide to take the matter to court. Our goal is always to seek an equitable, reasonable solution to business disputes and other issues that both protect and advance our clients’ business interests.
Is ADR right for your business? Contact Framework Legal today to discuss the facts of your particular case.
