Alternative Dispute Resolution

Verrill offers its clients a range of alternative dispute resolution services, including mediation, arbitration, facilitation, and early neutral evaluation. Our ADR professionals welcome challenging disputes and complex issues. We have a wealth of collective litigation experience, substantive legal knowledge, and real world experience.

Our ADR attorneys include a former state supreme court justice, former state trial court judge, former state attorney general, former chief deputy state attorney general, former mayor, former school board chair and some of the top lawyers in the state within their fields. As a result, we are well-situated to help parties effectively resolve their disputes.

In addition to our general experience in ADR, we are uniquely qualified to help parties in the following areas:

  • labor and employment
  • commercial and corporate finance
  • design, construction and insurance
  • intellectual property
  • energy and telecommunications
  • state and local government and public policy
  • family and divorce

Resolving disputes is not easy, but our ADR team understands how to bring parties together, help them better understand their mutual interests, and offer workable solutions that best resolve their dispute. As a full-service law firm, we are well-versed in most areas of law, and our offices are geared to accommodate any number of parties or break-out sessions. We look forward to helping resolve your disputes.
