Alternative Dispute Resolution
Drawn out litigation can be a serious detriment to your business, even if you are the plaintiff in a claim. Resolutions gained through the courts can certainly prove valuable, but they also must run on the schedule of a system taxed by an abundance of lawsuits. In some cases, by the time appeals are exhausted and a final judicial decision is rendered, many years may have passed. Throughout its duration the dispute may have served as a constant distraction and drain on your emotional and financial reserves. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) may offer a quicker way to end a troublesome matter.
If you are considering whether an alternative dispute resolution clause might be worth including in your contracts or seeking in the midst of a current issue, we may be able to help you to choose wisely. Contact the Des Moines business lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (877) 327-2600.
