Effective legal advocacy includes the prevention of disputes through sound business planning and the resolution of disputes through advice and counsel regarding the appropriate use of alternative dispute resolution processes. Clients rely on lawyers to help them integrate alternative dispute resolution processes with traditional litigation to achieve a resolution that integrates business solutions with legal remedies. To meet the needs of today’s clients and to fulfill the increasingly mandated obligations found in statutes, court rules and professional codes of conduct, lawyers are required to have an understanding of all areas of negotiation, mediation, arbitration and litigation.
