Alternative Dispute Resolution
While noted for our courtroom successes, we have been at the forefront of the field of alternative dispute resolution (ADR)—achieving positive results for our clients without the delay, expense, and uncertainty of going to court.
Lewis Baach Kaufmann Middlemiss attorneys offer industry-leading skills and proven success in negotiation, both private and court-sponsored mediation, and arbitration—before the American Arbitration Association, the International Chamber of Commerce, the London Court of International Arbitration, the New York Stock Exchange, the National Association of Securities Dealers, and many U.S. courts—to avoid courtroom delays and help you get on with business.
We will assess the costs and benefits of various dispute resolution alternatives and work with you to decide when they are appropriate and when it is best to litigate—always remaining focused on your ultimate business goals.
Because we are also dedicated foremost to our clients’ success, we will work to keep you out of disputes that require legal action. At Lewis Baach Kaufmann Middlemiss we conduct negotiation workshops for our clients—training them in the ADR techniques that we use—so that you can successfully resolve many matters before they develop into formal disputes.

In these tough times, when clients are looking to protect assets and increase revenue, it is more important than ever to ensure that their arbitral awards are collectible. A truly successful outcome requires the ability to enforce and monetize the award that was won in the arbitration. When faced with a recalcitrant award debtor, it is imperative to think strategically and work closely with counsel and experts to enforce and identify recoverable assets.April 2, 2020
