At the forefront of our ADR Practice Group is The Honorable Lisa F. Chrystal (Ret.), who served on the New Jersey Superior Court for 22 years, including 8 years in the Civil Division before joining the firm. Whether serving as mediator or consultant to legal teams, the depth and breadth of her experience as a distinguished judge and before that as a seasoned attorney allow her to provide deep, impartial and meaningful solutions. During her judicial career, Judge Chrystal unique qualifications enable the ADR Practice Group to offer mini-trials, private judging, and neutral evaluations of disputes and appellate arguments.
The attorneys in the ADR Practice Group develop sophisticated strategies for conflict management and resolution by placing an early and comprehensive focus on the business and personal relationships, transaction details, and other relevant factors that have contributed to a dispute. An effective resolution through ADR should uphold the rights of all parties, meet their objectives, preserve relationships, and avoid the time and expense associated with traditional litigation.
