ADR Chambers announces the launch of the brand new Expedited Arbitration Rules.
Expedited Arbitrations are fast and cheap. And there’s no wiggle room.
There’s a fixed fee so parties know exactly what they’re paying. The fee is under $6,500 per party for everything including the arbitrator’s fees, the room rental fees and the administration fees.
There is a fixed time frame so parties know exactly how long the arbitration will take. Arbitrations under the Expedited Arbitration Rules are concluded in under three months from the selection of the arbitrator to the written reasons. Often faster. read on...

ADR Chambers is pleased to announce the launch of eVideo mediation.
Not everyone involved in a dispute is in the same city. The cost and time of traveling out of town for a mediation can be a real impediment to scheduling and proceeding with a mediation. Now there’s a solution. eVideo mediations allow parties and lawyers to have a mediation in real time where people are in different cities.
Participants can see each other online, hear each other, exchange documents and jointly draft settlement agreements. All you need is a computer. We take care of the rest. read on...
