Litigation isn’t always the best way to resolve business or personal disputes. Under certain circumstances, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as arbitration or mediation can be quicker and more cost-effective than pursuing a civil lawsuit.

The lawyers at Jardim, Meisner & Susser, P.C., are well-versed in various forms of alternative dispute resolution. We have handled arbitrations through the American Arbitration Association, JAMS and FINRA, as well as court-supervised arbitrations in the federal courts and in New Jersey and New York state courts. We resolve disputes through mediation with either private or court-appointed mediators. We provide the same efficient, cost-effective, and aggressive representation our clients have come to expect from us in the courtroom.

In addition to engaging in the ADR process itself, we often help clients determine if a party can be compelled by contract to submit a dispute to arbitration or mediation. Our attorneys have enforced contractual arbitration clauses and defended against attempts to over-reach the confines of such clauses. For clients negotiating contracts, we provide valuable advice about including an ADR clause in an agreement.
