Lugenbuhl attorneys understand that resolving a conflict through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) (e.g., mediation, arbitration, conciliation, negotiation and transaction) is often either contractually required or simply the best solution. Our experienced attorneys serve as the driving force behind accomplishing clients’ goals through ADR. Our unwavering commitment to solutions in our clients’ best interest is exemplified by our proven track record of fostering timely, effective and amicable resolutions.
