Having decades of experience representing diverse clients in complex arbitrations, Shackelford’s litigation team is ready for any size arbitration proceeding. In mediation, we have been in both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s seats and served as the neutral mediator. This understanding translates into our ability to quickly read the literal and figurative terrain of an arbitration or mediation. It gives us a level of comfort with the nuances of a conference-room process, which is vastly different from the more prescriptive rules and procedures of the courtroom – an important distinction that sets us apart from much of our competition.
In addition to having a hard-earned knowledge of how and why things work with arbitration and alternative dispute resolution (along with rigorous training). We know the women and men who sit as arbitrators and mediators and how best to quickly persuade them of the correctness of our positions, and to do that with precision and efficiency.
The risks of a long, expensive trial are escalating and barely one in ten cases end up in trial. The members of our arbitration and ADR practice easily pivot from litigation to arbitration and mediation, a nimbleness that provides our clients and us with a head start. We work closely with clients to develop a comprehensive and efficient dispute resolution plan.
Shackelford also has well-respected mediators available to assist in resolving all types of disputes.
