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.
As business — and dispute resolution — becomes more global and interconnected, it will become increasingly important to understand the complexities of cross border disputes and to juggle the different cultural approaches in the dispute resolution process. Staying current requires not only knowledge of the laws, but also the language and business customs in all the countries where you operate — or plan to expand.
In this report, lawyers from Dentons' global offices examine recent changes in litigation, arbitration and mediation across North America, UK, Continental Europe, Russia and Asia. Read more
