Alternative Dispute Resolution

Wargo French Singer’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) practice was developed to assist our clients in managing conflict in today’s litigious business environment.

Many companies are learning the hard way that a successful organization must be able to respond to all business disputes promptly and effectively. The existence of claims and litigation should not be the only reason to consider ADR. Proactive solutions, such as implementing an effective ADR program and enforcing existing contractual obligations through ADR processes, can substantially reduce the likelihood that your company will face future lawsuits, multiple-plaintiff claims or class actions.

WFS specializes in working with organizations and their legal departments to deliver a full array of ADR services. Moreover, our attorneys routinely act as mediators and arbitrators in civil disputes, which provides our firm with a unique perspective in representing clients in alternative dispute resolution forums. For example, Joe Wargo and Mike French are panelists on the American Arbitration Association’s roster of mediators and arbitrators, while David Pernini is a registered mediator and arbitrator for the Georgia Commission on Dispute Resolution.
