Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternatives to lengthy and expensive litigation are endorsed by Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP. Representation of our clients frequently involves mediation or arbitration of disputes and the firm's members are experienced in representing clients in Alternative Dispute Resolution (or "ADR") proceedings. Also, several of the members of the firm focus on providing ADR services to other lawyers and businesses and individuals who find themselves in need of a trained and skilled arbitrator, mediator, or other dispute resolution professional.
Members of the firm have provided ADR services resulting in successful resolution of many disputes, including commercial, tort, employment, utility, land use and construction matters. All of the firm's ADR professionals are qualified to provide ADR services concerning a variety of disputes, and to provide "team" ADR services in complex or other cases that may benefit from more than one arbitrator or mediator.
Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP's trained, experienced and certified ADR professionals have served as neutral mediators or arbitrators of nearly 200 disputes, and members of the firm have represented parties in hundreds of other ADR proceedings. The firm's ADR practitioners typically have experience in litigating the matters for which they offer mediation, arbitration or other ADR services, and bring the practical knowledge and skills gained from that experience to their roles as neutrals in alternative dispute resolution.
