Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) is a forum used as a means to find a remedy short of trial. The generally accepted ADR options consist of Early Neutral Evaluation, Mediation and Arbitration. Klein, Hockel, Iezza & Patal utilizes ADR options where appropriate as a complement to traditional litigation. We have represented a variety of corporate and commercial clients for a wide range of disputes.
Attorneys in the ADR practice group have substantial expertise in the ADR processes. We advise clients on the most effective ADR option for the problem at hand, counsel on the rules and format of the ADR procedure, and provide creative, innovative and efficient representation at the chosen ADR forum.
Jonathan Allan Klein has been appointed arbitrator for cases filed before the San Francisco Superior Court and Early Neutral Evaluator for cases before the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California.
