Alternative Dispute Resolution
Our alternative dispute resolution practice offers both arbitration and mediation as options to resolving matters. Our lawyers have served as neutrals on behalf of the American Arbitration Association, the American Bar Association and other groups helping disputing parties resolve matters involving complex construction, insurance, surety and maritime issues.
Our lawyers are frequent speakers and authors on alternative dispute resolution topics and have addressed issues such as ethical dilemmas, discovery matters in the digital age, complex multi-party disputes and have provided practical tips on handling cases.
Two of our lawyers received formal mediation training at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law. Several are members of the American Arbitration Association. Two of our lawyers are Fellows in the American College of Construction Lawyers, an invitation only organization. Throughout the past decade, Best Lawyers in America has consistently named Bruce Shreves “Lawyer of the Year” in the New Orleans area for his work in both Arbitration and Mediation.
