Disputes are a part of doing business; at Dentons, resolving them is our business. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is one of Dentons' core practices. Litigation may be a necessary component of a dispute resolution strategy, but it is only one of the problem-solving tools we apply to resolve disputes.
As the use of ADR has grown, so too has the sophistication of the processes we employ. Effective, successful use of ADR mechanisms requires counsel with specialized training and experience. Dentons has long been at the forefront of ADR development, investing significantly in training our lawyers. Experienced in the full range of arbitration, negotiation, mediation and settlement techniques, including settlement counsel, we are a globally recognized ADR leader.
