A Rich Perspective on Alternative Dispute Resolution
Nine times out of ten, a legal dispute will be solved in mediation or arbitration before trial. For this reason, it is important to select a law firm whose attorneys are experienced with alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Mr. Russo's experiences as decision-maker in arbitrations provide a wealth of knowledge that we are able to draw upon to help our clients.
Jack Russo also serves as a Mediator, or Early Settlement Neutral through the Santa Clara Courthouses' Judge Pro Temp Program. He is also available for private mediation for full and half days. His Charitable Foundation, Foundation for Creativity in Dispute Resolution advocates creative win/win solutions to complex issues through creative thinking. His focus on creativity and "outside of the box" thinking, helps facilitate the best possible solutions between parties.
Computerlaw Group LLP attorneys routinely handle mediation and arbitration matters before the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) and the American Arbitration Association (AAA).
Not only are our attorneys skilled at using the specialized dispute resolution forums of arbitration and mediation to advocate for our clients' goals — several of our lawyers have themselves served as arbitrators, mediators, or early neutral evaluators. Our attorneys' experiences as decision-makers in mediations and arbitrations provide a wealth of knowledge that we are able to draw upon to help our clients.
We help our clients set attainable, real-world goals, and then we plan how best to achieve those goals given the forum chosen to resolve the dispute.
Alternative Dispute Resolution in Intellectual Property Cases
Mediation or arbitration is especially common in a few specific areas of intellectual property disputes: employment disputes, software license violations, and trade secret litigation. This is so because these relationships are often governed by agreements that specify that the parties will use arbitration — instead of a lawsuit — to resolve disagreements.
As in other areas of our practice, Computerlaw Group 's attorneys work in cross-functional teams to give our clients access to the broadest range of relevant experience. Our mediation strategies are informed by the opinions of our firm's most knowledgeable courtroom lawyers.
