Alternative Dispute Resolution
Gjording Fouser has the reputation that, if requested by the client, they will go to trial. However, we also understand the benefit of alternative dispute resolution. There are numerous occasions when clients can achieve a satisfactory result as well as significant costs savings by resolving their cases through mediation. When appropriate, we advocate for early mediation and participate in over 15 mediations a year.
In addition, many contracts now require parties to resolve their differences in an arbitration forum and Gjording Fouser has extensive experience defending companies in binding arbitrations. Besides assisting in settling cases prior to presenting evidence to an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, our experience also includes presenting evidence and obtaining arbitration decisions representing hospitals in a breach of contract action brought by a physician and representing insurance companies in claims brought by their insureds.
