Arbitration and mediation are time-tested, cost-effective alternatives to litigation. Arbitration is the submission of a dispute to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding decision, known as an “award.” Awards are made in writing and are generally final and binding on the parties in the case. Mediation, on the other hand, is a process in which an impartial third party facilitates communication and negotiation and promotes voluntary decision making by the parties to the dispute. This process can be effective for resolving disputes prior to arbitration or litigation.
In addition to being strong advocates for their clients, Stanley Lubin and Nicholas J. Enoch both regularly serve as neutrals for various national dispute resolution forums. Messrs. Lubin and Enoch have administered, facilitated and arbitrated numerous cases with a keen appreciation of the volatility of these emotional and hotly contested disputes. They understand the complexities of multiple party cases and assist the parties in devising creative solutions while recognizing the competing economic interests of businesses and individual claimants. What is more important, Messrs. Lubin and Enoch help people, businesses and organizations end disputes and avoid the high cost and long delays of litigation using mediation or arbitration.
Both Mr. Lubin and Mr. Enoch are available, by direct appointment, to serve as an arbitrator or mediator in your commercial or employment case.
