Alternative Dispute Resolution

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We recognize that the court system is not always the best way to resolve a dispute. Arbitration, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution methods are often quicker, less expensive, and more final than litigation.

Jeremy is pleased to act as a neutral mediator or arbitrator of any complex dispute.  We provide neutral services worldwide.  Please feel free to contact us to schedule your arbitration or mediation.
