Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers to processes and techniques for resolving disputes outside of litigation.
We assist you in the following ADR processes:
Our community includes lawyers trained in principled negotiation, a negotiation technique originally developed by Harvard University, which maximizes the chances of reaching an agreement
Mediation is a form of negotiation in which the parties call upon a trained third party who is independent, neutral, and impartial.
Through various specific techniques, this third party helps the parties to re-establish dialogue, overcome their reluctance, deal with the conflict in depth and devise creative solutions in order to reach a tailor-made agreement.
Our lawyers accompany individuals and companies through the mediation process, providing legal and strategic support. We furthermore have a certified mediator in the person of Pierre Bruwier.
Conciliation is the form of negotiation in which a magistrate tries to reconcile the parties, if necessary, by formulating concrete proposals.
If the conciliation fails and the parties go to court, the judge who will be called upon to decide the dispute cannot be the same judge who had previously tried to conciliate the parties. Our lawyers accompany individuals and companies in the conciliation process, offering them legal and strategic support.
