Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) has proven to be an effective and cost-efficient substitute to resolve business, technical, and other types of disputes. Vandeventer Black’s team of ADR attorneys serve as mediators, arbitrators, partnering facilitators, and neutrals in a variety of business and technical disputes.

Several of our ADR attorneys serve on American Arbitration Association, are members of Dispute Resolution Boards, and other ADR organizations panels of neutrals for specific industries, such as constructionfinance, and securities disputes.  Many of our ADR attorneys are certified as mediators for court-referred disputes by the Virginia Supreme Court and the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission, in addition to having acted as partnering facilitators for complex construction projects.

Not only do we regularly act as neutrals in disputes, but we also have extensive experience representing our clients in mediation, arbitration, in front of dispute resolution boards, early neutral evaluations, mini-trials, and in a variety of  litigation alternatives.
