Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Butzel Longs labor and employment law attorneys actively promote the use of various methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Our standard approach for employment litigation matters includes consideration and pursuit of ADR upon a clients approval. We have significant experience in creating and evaluating pre-dispute resolution procedures, drafting employee arbitration clauses, and representing employers during mediation or arbitration.

Many of our attorneys are registered mediators and arbitrators who preside over mediations and assist adverse parties in reaching settlements.
