Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including mediation, project mediation, adjudication, and arbitration, has become an increasingly popular and common mechanism for the resolution of disputes within the construction industry.
Parties may be contractually bound to various alternative dispute resolution events or may voluntarily submit to alternative dispute resolution after a dispute has arisen. Both non-binding and binding forms of alternative dispute resolution before neutral, independent third parties can work in conjunction with or entirely displace more customary forms of adversarial proceedings, such as those before the Courts.
In addition to traditional advocacy, McLauchlin & Associates maintains significant experience acting as counsel in all forms of alternative dispute resolution. In this regard, we strive to undertake creative, flexible and results based problem solving on behalf and to the satisfaction of our clients.
