ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

 

Resolving differences in court is expensive, time consuming and unpredictable.  For businesses in particular, disputes often need a solution more quickly than the two-plus years required to work through the court system (and in today’s fast-paced environment, the issues may be moot, and opportunities lost, in those two years!).  At Kampbell & Johnson, we believe that most conflicts should be resolved using faster and less expensive alternative methods of dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration.

 

Mediation and arbitration do not take place in a vacuum, and Kampbell & Johnson has a mediator and arbitrator who is also a CPA (inactive), has run a business and negotiated transactions on 5 continents, and worked with countless family and non-family businesses on succession planning and other issues.  Along with direct experience as a mediator and arbitrator, this combination of skills helps resolve disputes and helps businesses continue to concentrate on the marketplace rather than on litigation.

 

 

Examples of alternative dispute services are:

 

Mediation:  The mediator acts as a neutral facilitator to help the parties resolve the dispute.

 

Arbitration:  The arbitrator reviews the evidence and decides the case.

 

Counseling: The counselor helps stakeholders in a business or other organization work through issues over a period of time. Examples are working with succession planning or deep-rooted controversy.
