Peter Ruby at The Litigator's View of ADR for Technology Disputes


Lawyer Peter Ruby
Area Litigation, Technology


There is a lot of talk about the benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as mediation and arbitration. 

  • Why is ADR not used more often for technology disputes?
  • What makes ADR suitable for some cases and not others?
  • What can technology law and ADR professionals do to better suit ADR to IT disputes?
  • Are there arbitration, escalation and mediation clauses that work better than others in IT contracts? 

An experienced IT and intellectual property litigator speaks frankly about the pros and cons of mediation, arbitration and litigation. Challenges include: picking the right neutral and managing the process to realize the benefits promised by ADR.
