Whether we’re handling a litigation or transactional matter, our approach is simple — provide the highest quality legal advice in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
While Berger Harris prides itself on our reputation as a capable Delaware litigation firm, parties often would like the opportunity to resolve their disputes without a trial.
Arbitration is a process by which disputes are resolved in a modified, usually greatly simplified, proceeding, presided over by a neutral third-party arbitrator. The arbitrator is the ultimate finder of fact and law. His or her ruling is generally binding upon the parties and may only be appealed in certain limited circumstances. Several Berger Harris attorneys are Bar-certified arbitrators in corporate, commercial and employment law disputes. Berger Harris attorneys also have many years of experience participating in binding arbitration proceedings, including under American Arbitration Association (AAA) and JAMS procedural rules.
Mediation involves the use of a neutral third-party mediator to provide a relatively fast and inexpensive resolution to a dispute. Mediation is generally consensual and non-binding; a settlement cannot be imposed and may only be arrived at by agreement between the parties, which it is the mediator’s job to facilitate. Berger Harris attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in mediation matters, and their years of experience in a wide array of complex disputes makes them well-suited to serve as mediators in corporate, commercial, and employment matters.
