Arbitration, Mediation & Other ADR Procedures

Using Alternative Methods Of Dispute Resolution

Miller Shah LLP  considers the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to be an integral part of the practice of law and the advice that we provide to our clients. Whereas litigation tends to be expensive and unpredictable, the alternatives tend to be less costly in every sense and give the parties more control over the outcome.

Miller Shah lawyers have a broad range of ADR experience in a broad spectrum of legal matters, from business disputes to personal legal matters. With offices in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Florida and California, our firm is able to provide alternative dispute resolution options to clients nationwide and overseas.

Exploring The Alternatives To Litigation

Our attorneys have extensive experience advising and representing clients in ADR proceedings, including:

  • Direct negotiation
  • Dispute review boards
  • Domestic and international arbitration
  • Med-arbs (hybrid method)
  • Mediation and customized ADR options
  • Mini-trials
  • Private judges
  • Summary jury trials

We regularly counsel clients in FINRA arbitrations arising from investment losses, for example. Miller Shah attorneys engage in ADR methods for all types of civil matters, including antitrust, commercial transactions, construction, consumer and financial transactions, corporate and contract law, employment and labor disputes, intellectual property, insurance, and securities and corporate governance.

Experienced Neutrals On Staff

In addition to regularly representing our clients in these ADR proceedings, Miller Shah attorneys have extensive experience acting as neutrals (arbitrators, mediators and private judges) and as settlement counsel. Members of the Miller Shah team have acted as advocates and neutrals in proceedings before the American Arbitration Association; the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service; the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA, formerly known as the National Association of Securities Dealers); the New York Stock Exchange; the Grain and Feed Trade Association; the International Centre for Dispute Resolution; the International Chamber of Commerce, Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc., both domestically and internationally; as well as in a number of quasi-public and private ADR proceedings.
