Arbitration & Mediation

Meet the Team >
True to Greenberg Traurig’s approach to attain results consistent with its clients' business objectives, its Arbitration & Mediation Practice is skilled in Alternative Dispute Resolution. Our litigators stand ready to engage in early case assessments and, depending on the situation, may recommend pre-suit or early-in-the-case mediation as a way to resolve disputes sensibly and cost effectively. Our experience in projecting likely outcomes and the costs and burdens of litigation is a valuable asset for our clients. We also seek the right fit of a mediator for cases depending on the national or local scale of the case and other case-specific factors, and, through our preparation, we maximize the potential of the mediation process to obtain settlements for our clients.

Arbitration has increasingly become the choice of our clients to resolve disputes as an alternative to the court system. To that end, our litigation team has wide-ranging experience in conducting arbitrations whether they involve domestic or international business-to-business disputes or defending clients in arbitrations brought by consumers, employees, or investors. Domestically in the United States, we have tried arbitrations before single arbitrator or three arbitrator panels under the auspices of the AAA, JAMS, FINRA, and the CDR. For international disputes, we have represented clients before the major international arbitration forums, including the ICC, LCIA, ICDR, ICSID, UNCITRAL, CPR, NAFTA, and CAFTA, as well as ad hoc proceedings. Within Greenberg Traurig’s global platform, our multilingual attorneys are able to conduct international arbitrations where disputes must be decided in accordance with languages other than English.
