Stalwart and Relentless Business Attorneys
ARBITRATION & MEDIATION
Many approach legal disputes with the expectation that it will be necessary to fully litigate issues of disagreement in order to achieve a favorable outcome. At LA Law Firm, P.C., we firmly believe that clients benefit from litigation alternatives, such as arbitration and mediation, which provide for a more expedient resolution of disputes without sacrificing results. For over 25 years, we have successfully represented our clients in mediations and arbitrations.
ARBITRATION is an alternative to a civil trial in which the parties agree — or are required to — have their case be decided by a single or a panel of arbitrators. This can be an individual selected by the parties, or a panel of arbitrators (for example, each party selects an arbitrator, and those in turn select a third to complete a panel). The role of the arbitrator(s) is to evaluate the evidence of both parties and to render a binding decision.
MEDIATION, by contrast, can serve as both an alternative and complement to a civil trial. A mediator will attempt to facilitate more productive discussions between the parties, with the goal of reaching agreement and a binding settlement on contested issues. Mediation itself is not a binding procedure, however, and typically parties who cannot reach an agreement resume traditional litigation or arbitration.
At LA Law Firm, we approach every case attuned to not only the results our clients seek, but also the methods we use to achieve those results. While in certain situations litigation will be the most effective way to resolve a dispute in a client’s favor, we never hesitate to utilize alternate means whenever possible.

APPLYING LITIGATION STRATEGIES OUTSIDE THE COURTROOM
Because arbitration and mediation often provide for faster and more cost-effective resolution of legal disputes, it has become more common for parties to voluntarily enter into these forms of alternative dispute resolution. At the same time, many if not most real estate and business contracts include provisions that compel parties to pursue arbitration or mediation to resolve disagreements.
Although arbitration and mediation by their nature occur outside of formal judicial proceedings, we apply some of the same key strategies when preparing client’s case for arbitration or mediation, including: aggressive advocacy, extensive discovery and an understanding of how the opposing side operates.
Our firm focuses on arbitration in a number of specific contexts, including:
- Real Estate arbitration
- Commercial arbitration
- Construction arbitration
- International arbitration
Additionally, our firm has extensive experience using mediation to arrive at favorable settlement agreements for disputes in the areas of corporate law, real estate law, and business and commercial law.
REAL ESTATE ARBITRATION
Real estate arbitration is an alternative to a civil trial when the parties voluntarily agree or are contractually required to have their dispute be adjudicated by a single arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators. The role of the arbitrator(s) is very similar to that of a judge: to conduct the arbitration, evaluate the evidence and the testimony of witnesses, and to render a binding decision.
Most real estate contracts require parties to resolve all their disputes through binding arbitration. At LA Law Firm, P.C., we firmly believe that binding real estate arbitration is the most effective and economical method of resolving all real estate disputes.

In light of the continuing budget cuts in California’s judicial branch, it is now nearly impossible to litigate construction disputes effectively or aggressively in the California State Courts; litigants are often required to wait two to three years to go to trial. As such, most real estate and construction contracts now require that all disputes be resolved by way of binding real estate arbitration.
In the past 25 years, we have successfully represented property owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers in construction arbitrations. At LA Law Firm, we are committed to protecting your interest and providing you with experienced and effective legal representation during all stages of the real estate arbitration process.

In today’s global economy, where the transformation of raw materials into finished goods requires a journey across a number of different continents, business disputes can involve a foreign corporation and a contract that may require the arbitration to be conducted not only in a different state or country but also according to the laws of a foreign country or international treaties.

We are committed to providing our clients with skilled and experienced counsel in commercial and international arbitrations.
