Alternative Dispute Resolution
Over the past decade courts, counsel and clients have sought ways to deal with the delays and cost of lawsuits. This has led to the growing use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques, such as conciliation, mediation and arbitration. In order to provide the most cost-effective representation to our clients, Reid & Wise is committed to recommending and pursuing alternative dispute resolution whenever appropriate. Our attorneys regularly serve as counsel to clients involved in arbitrations, mediations and negotiations, especially for resolving cross-border commercial disputes. We are also equipped to appear before major international arbitral institutions, including the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC).
