Resolving Problems

No matter what precautions you take, some litigation may be unavoidable in the business world. It is also very expensive. While we are highly effective in the courtroom on behalf of our clients, most cases matters do not need to go that far. One of our strengths lies in our ability to work in a professional manner with opposing counsel to resolve issues.

This includes all levels of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation, settlement conferences, arbitration and trials by reference. Just as every case has a strategy, most business disputes and problems that companies face also have strategies that can be used to resolve disputes. At Stocker & Lancaster, LLP, we work closely with our clients on both short and long term planning to help them address these issues before they arise.
