Alternative Dispute Resolution
Singleton Urquhart recognizes that many disputes can be more effectively resolved by using alternative dispute resolution procedures rather than following the traditional route of costly and time consuming litigation. The members of the Alternative Dispute Resolution group are highly qualified practitioners who regularly act as arbitrators, mediators or settlement counsel in a broad range of legal disputes.
