Mediation & Arbitration

Attorneys who practice Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) at Jennings Haug Cunningham represent businesses, government entities and individuals involved in business disputes, employment matters, environmental disputes, and personal injury or property damage claims.

ADR encompasses primarily arbitration and mediation. These services are designed to reduce risk and resolve conflicts outside of litigation, saving both sides a significant amount of time, money and resources.

Business disputes often involve relationships with landlords/tenants, employees, partners, suppliers or vendors. The arbitration and mediation process can remove the inhibiting emotional barriers to conflict resolution, paving the way for a settlement. Mediation is a voluntary process that enables the parties to determine the conditions of their settlement. The arbitration process, which is often required by contract, employs a neutral third party, who will reach a decision that is binding for each side.

ADR services are available, but not limited to, disputes in the following areas:

  • General business
  • Commercial real estate
  • Landlord/tenant
  • Construction
  • Utilities
  • Government
  • Personal injury
  • Employment
  • Environmental
  • Insurance

Our Mediation and Conference Center is equipped with four segregated conference rooms and the latest in digital audio, video and Internet technology to support the ADR process.


Chad L. Schexnayder, Jack R. Cunningham, John G. Sinodis, Brian D. Myers, Blake E. Whiteman, William F. Haug, Alana L. Porrazzo, Thomas Edward Mitchell and Paul J. Roshka lead the firm’s alternative dispute resolution practice.
