Dispute Resolution for Coronavirus-Related Business Claims

On June 4, 2020 by Schnader in Alternative Dispute Resolution

As the world recovers from the Covid-19 crisis, many pressing business disputes – whether local, national, or international – must be resolved in a fair, timely, and cost-effective manner. Effective mediation may be especially important given the overflow of cases expected in court and the resulting slowdown and expense of the litigation process.

Companies facing commercial disputes will benefit from alternatives to litigation that respect the interests of the parties, their contractual agreements, and the impact of the coronavirus on their operations and the broader economy.

Schnader serves a constructive role in helping companies to preserve business relationships and find creative solutions to their challenging disputes involving contract, lease, labor, and other issues. We strive to help companies get back to work, save jobs, and start returning to normalcy.

To accomplish these objectives, our attorneys can provide a wide array of Alternative Dispute Resolution services. In most cases, this may involve structured mediation with the assistance of our lawyers who have deep experience in a range of industries, business operations, and dispute resolution techniques.

To help the greatest number of businesses participate in our country’s economic recovery, Schnader is prepared to work with companies to offer these services through time- and cost-efficient means, including remote discussions and proceedings by video where appropriate.
