Creative problem solving is our strong suit.
Advice for positive outcomes.Our goal in every case we handle at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney is to achieve a positive outcome for our client. To do this, we examine every angle and consider every possible approach. Often, it's clear that the best way to get an acceptable result is through litigation, and we pursue that option vigorously. In many cases, however, there are other options.
Preserving what's good.Prolonged litigation can exhaust financial resources, productivity and goodwill. In many cases, Alternative Dispute Resolution — mediation, arbitration, mini-trials and non-jury trials — can serve a client’s needs more effectively than litigation.
Reaching agreements every day.We regularly participate in all forms of ADR proceedings. We've served as mediators, arbitrators and special masters — by appointment of federal and state court judges — in more than 75 cases including class action, employment and other civil litigation matters. We've also acted as a court-authorized "neutral" party.
We also represent our clients as they prepare for and participate in ADR proceedings. If the ADR proceeding is mediation, we prepare pre-mediation statements and counsel our clients as they evaluate their options during the mediation sessions. If the ADR proceeding is more adversarial, we aggressively litigate the matter to achieve the best results for our clients.
