Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Marijuana Business Lawyers

Litigation is a hugely expensive undertaking that does not produce guaranteed results. Because of this, there has been a large increase in the use of alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) mechanisms in recent decades. Alternative dispute resolution mechanisms like arbitration and mediation offer parties a forum in which to resolve their differences without involving the courts. In addition to being less expensive than litigation, ADR has the added benefit of being conducted in private.

Like litigation, ADR generally involves lawyers, presenting evidence, and are sometimes presided over by current or former judges. Because the goal of ADR is to bring the parties to a resolution, these proceedings are often less adversarial than litigation. The ADR can be either binding or non-binding, and if it is binding it has the same force of law as a court decision.

Given the rise in popularity in ADR mechanisms, many cannabis businesses are finding themselves engaging in arbitration and mediation to resolve their disputes. This trend will only continue to increase as the cannabis industry expands and more businesses are directed toward ADR. Having an experienced attorney who has been through many mediations and arbitrations can help put you in the best possible position for your ADR.
