Parker Poe attorneys are committed to helping clients achieve a prompt, efficient resolution to even the most complex and challenging disputes.
We regularly advise clients on structuring the best dispute resolution method for their businesses, ranging from consumer contracts to complicated acquisitions, procurement and other contracts. We have negotiated and crafted agreements on the use of alternative dispute methods even after disputes have arisen. In this regard, we have also crafted special dispute resolution rules and handled arbitrations without using private dispute resolution agencies.
Traditional Methods of ADR
We have extensive experience with the alternative dispute resolution techniques of arbitration, mediation and summary jury trials. Many of our lawyers served on the task forces and committees charged with developing these methods for use in North Carolina and were involved in writing the rules applicable to these techniques. We were the first firm to participate in a summary jury trial in court in North Carolina.
