Alternative Dispute Resolution


Related Practice Areas


Robinson Bradshaw attorneys practice primarily as counselors, advisers and advocates. Several attorneys also devote portions of their practices to serving as neutrals in alternative dispute resolution. We often serve as arbitrators, mediators, neutral evaluators and “private judges” in litigation and pre-litigation situations.

We have unique depth and breadth of experience in alternative dispute resolution. One Robinson Bradshaw attorney was in the original class of mediators certified in North Carolina in 1992. Some of our lawyers have taught negotiation in law schools and trained other mediators. Others are sought out by attorneys throughout the Southeast to bring their specific practice experience to bear in resolving particularly complex, delicate and contentious disputes in areas including wrongful death actions, equitable distributions of marital estates, international trade and even ecclesiastical controversies. We also assist in resolving a range of more typical commercial and business disputes in many different legal areas.

Attorneys in this practice group are either certified as mediators by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission or approved for service on panels of various alternative dispute resolution organizations.
