About the Book

This book is your guide to the variety of practices that make up alternative dispute resolution and the issues that surround them. Written for litigators by other experienced trial lawyers and third-party neutrals, this book provides you with the information you need to evaluate each technique and successfully apply them to your cases when appropriate. Each of the following ADR procedures is summarized with analysis of its benefits and its potential problems:

  • Neutral fact finding
  • Early neutral evaluation
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Summary jury trial
  • Mini-trial

    Successive chapters, all of which take a practical approach to the issues concerning litigation attorneys, cover:

  • How to know whether ADR is right for your case
  • Arbitration agreements: advantages of pre-dispute and post-dispute agreements and their enforcement
  • Choosing the right type of ADR for each dispute
  • The role of the third-party neutral
  • Necessary steps to prepare for successful arbitration or mediation
  • Professional ethics issues specific to dispute resolution
  • Uses of ADR in specific areas of law: consumer, commercial, tort, employment, construction, environmental, intellectual property, family, international, and bankruptcy

    Sample documents and time-saving tools
    Numerous checklists, practice tips, sample agreements, and ADR case management documents are included to assist you, and the volume concludes with a compilation of the ADR rules and settlement practices in the U.S. district courts.
  • Testimonials

    "At last - a comprehensive one volume handbook for anybody interested in ADR. This is one book that should occupy a prominent place on the desk of any lawyer considering strategic options such as mediation, arbitration, mini-trials and other forms of ADR. For too long, litigators have viewed ADR with skepticism and suspicion. No longer! Alternative Dispute Resolution: The Litigator's Handbook adds new weapons to the litigators's arsenal. It should be mandatory reading for anybody involved in dispute resolution."
