Alternative Dispute Resolution

The Hodgson Russ LLP litigation team is comprised of more than 80 lawyers with depth and vast experience in all aspects of business and commercial litigation. In many cases, it is in a client’s best interest to develop an alternative dispute resolution outcome, rather than settling a matter in court. Our Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Practice responds to that need.

Who Are We?

Hodgson Russ has assembled a select group of its commercial and business lawyers with extensive arbitration and mediation experience and training. The practice includes attorneys with strong subject matter knowledge as well as formal arbitration and mediation training. They also have hands-on experience with ADR cases.

The ADR group includes attorneys with in-depth knowledge of:

  • General business litigation
  • Construction
  • Intellectual property (including patents and trademarks)
  • Personal injury
  • Securities and investments
  • Business dissolution actions
  • Employment litigation
  • False Claims Act litigation

How We Can Help Clients

All members of the ADR Practice have:

  • Extensive trial experience
  • Experience in calculating damages in key substantive areas
  • Experience in ADR processes such as arbitrations, mediations, and extensive settlement discussions.

Each member of the ADR team is available to assist as a third-party neutral, a selected arbitration panel member, a mediator, or as a facilitator of settlement discussions, whether directed by a court, mandated by an agreement, or by agreement of the parties.  

Hodgson Russ’s ADR attorneys are also aware of the need to provide their services economically and in a timely way. The practice has wide flexibility in how it charges for its services and looks forward to partnering with the litigants and counsel to ensure the process reflects the interests of the parties in resolving disputes short of expensive and time-consuming litigation.
