Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our experience and expertise was formed in the courtroom, and in order to achieve a sound result, your adversary needs to know that you have an advocate in your corner that is at home in the courtroom and not afraid to go to trial. At the same time, we know that efforts to resolve disputes are often preferable to protracted litigation. The Markarian Group’s unique Private Judges and Alternative Dispute Resolution options provide private, quiet and completely confidential resolution of disputes.

Resolving disputes through traditional litigation in our court systems is expensive, and can take far too long. Moreover, traditional litigation disputes occur in public and can attract unwanted press and other “negative” attention, upsetting investors and disrupting pending or future deals and acquisitions. To meet the challenges of cost and delay inherent in our court system, and to ensure absolute privacy, The Markarian Group has developed a unique web of recently retired judges, board certified lawyers, and subject matter professionals, including scientists, engineers and others professionals, working together to quickly bring disputes to a close.

Properly designed alternative dispute resolution mechanisms can compare favorably to traditional litigation in terms of cost, while ensuring the confidentiality of the party’s final resolution, and the peace of mind in knowing that in certain unique situations, you can control whether the dispute does or does not become a matter of public record.

While we are highly competent in a courtroom and stand ready to represent and advance your business’ interests in court, we always strive to resolve all business disputes out of court, attempting to achieve win-win outcomes, if possible. We strongly believe that in most cases, resolving disputes out of court is the best thing for the majority of Florida businesses. The Markarian Group’s unique Private Judges and Alternative Dispute Resolution options provide private, quiet and completely confidential resolution of disputes.

Despite taking all the care in the world in drafting and negotiating contracts, disputes inevitably arise in the course of doing business, and some percentage invariably require the assistance of legal counsel and formal legal intervention to resolve.
