Alternative Solutions for Dispute Resolution

Attorney Carolyn Budnik is skilled at representing small business in alternative resolution methods.

  • Private Negotiations: It often makes better financial sense to pursue an out-of-court settlement than a court case. A dispute that matures into a litigation disaster can put a small business rapidly in the red. Small businesses should avoid the high costs of commercial litigation when they can. A client's ability to master its destiny may save the day financially. Ms. Budnik regularly offers pre-suit representation to clients to help them resolve disputes before a matter escalates.

  • Arbitration: Some contracts have specific clauses that require arbitration must take place to resolve disputes between parties. Arbitration provides a private forum, is usually faster than getting a court case to trial and is more cost-effective. Arbitration has the ability to resolve the underlying dispute(s) as well as the parties' competing claims for attorneys' fees and costs.

  • Mediation: Once a case is in a suit and ready to be set for trial, the Court will order the parties to go to Mediation. Mediation is responsible for the old saying, "Ninety-five-percent of all cases settles before trial." At Mediation, both sides get an opportunity to provide the Mediator with an opening statement of their case and their client's offer to settle. After opening, the parties caucus, and the Mediator works to get the parties to agree to settle by pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each case and the value of a settlement.
