Collaborative Law and Arbitration

Friday, July 31, 2015

Previously, we have discussed the use of arbitration to resolve complex and simple matters outside of court, in a manner that is cost-effective, private and empowering of its participants. We have advocated for use of private dispute resolution at all stages and for all kinds of determinations, ranging from discovery to valuations to cases in whole. We see it work effectively year round.

Recently, we learned that our friend and colleague, attorney Anthony Adamopoulos, of Salem, who is great promoter of family law arbitration in word and deed, has coined “Deadlock Arbitration (SM)” as a way of capturing the idea that when people who have opted for the collaborative process hit roadblock that they can’t negotiate successfully, they need not abandon their chosen process. Rather, they can break the deadlock with a swift, fair and inexpensive resolution by arbitration, and then get back to work in the collaborative format. Makes a lot of sense to us.

Anthony recently lectured on arbitration at Divorce Center, Inc.’s Networking/Professional Development Breakfast (4.29.15) on Using Arbitration to Reach Resolution. Congratulations to Anthony. Take a look at his website: divorcingoptions.com/arbitration_services.php
