ADR & Arbitration

The vast majority of contracts you will enter into will have an ADR (alternative dispute resolution) clause written into the contract. What this means for you, as a consumer, or for your business, is that if you have a contract dispute, you are legally required to enter into arbitration instead of taking your case to court.

Some of the more common types of contracts that include arbitration clauses:

  • Purchase of a car
  • Buying a home from a builder
  • A commercial lease agreement
  • Certain types of banking transactions (every banking agreements has an ADR provision in it)

At Ryan & Wilkes, P.C. we represent parties in the ADR process. We have conducted arbitrations before many different types of arbitration agencies for a wide range of contract disputes, particularly construction-related arbitration.

Our business attorneys have significant experience filing and pursuing arbitration for breaches of contract. We are members of the American Arbitration Association. We have handled private arbitration and mediation, court-ordered arbitration and court-ordered mediation. We are comfortable with all relevant statutes and arbitration procedures.

In addition to the selection of an arbitrator and the selection of rules, we can assist with the enforcement of an arbitration award. If your arbitration award is not satisfied within 30 days, we will petition the court on your behalf to secure a judgment that can then be collected.

If you have had a problem with a business contract, talk with an attorney about how to seek resolution. We will review your contract and advise you whether you must enter arbitration. From there, we will assist you throughout the process. Contact our Bay Minette or Orange Beach office to speak with a business lawyer. Call 251-202-7580.

No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
