THE MODERN ADVANTAGE

What Clients Prefer About Our Practice

 

Modern ADR’s unique dispute resolution programs are designed with efficiency in mind.  Our ADR processes are streamlined and simplified to eliminate unnecessary delays and exorbitant costs by maximizing workflow and document automation technology, in addition to removing the ‘red tape’ that plagues litigation.  The ICC International Court of Arbitration reports that exorbitant disclosure requests are the leading cause of rising arbitration expenses and our established programs limit both the time and volume of documentary requests as a cost control measure for all parties.  In addition, we provide several options in place of multi-day in person hearings to further reduce the cost of resolving a dispute.  Our expedited flat rate programs can cost as little as 25% of a full trial.

Expedience
We believe in the right ADR process for the right dispute.  Incarna Consulting provides mediation, arbitration, adjudication, early neutral evaluation, and everything in between to assist our clients in creating the most appropriate dispute resolution process for their needs.
Process
Our ready-made alternative dispute resolution programs are streamlined and efficient ways to resolve typical disputes in a variety of industries and practice areas.  They are also flexible enough to be adapted to unique situations without adding to case management costs.  Our work with administrative bodies such as ICC International Court of Arbitration, CUSMA trade secretariat, UNCITRAL, and the International Center for Dispute Resolution, among others, allows us to create efficient workflows for matters falling under their jurisdiction.
Expense
By reducing the need for costly document reproduction, unnecessary delays, and superfluous procedures, Incarna Consulting repeatedly provides the same calibre of dispute resolution at a reduced cost, typically a fraction of litigating a claim in the courts.  Further, parties can opt to include cost control mechanisms in their ADR clauses or in their process design.
Practicality
Our alternative dispute resolution processes provide timely resolution in a simple to follow process, even for non-lawyers.  In addition, our client-centered model provides ample opportunity for the parties to amend, extend, or contract the scope, duration, or format of their process.  The result is logical procedure, manageable deadlines, and appropriate decisions.
Efficacy
ADR works.  Approximately 98% of all matters referred to an alternative dispute resolution process never proceed to court. Unlike court decisions, which can typically be appealed through multiple rounds of litigation, ADR awards and agreements are not normally subject to appeal, and they are as legally binding and enforceable as a judgement.
