This book is a revised edition of Arbitration and Mediation of Business Disputes: A Wisconsin Practitioner's Guide
There’s more than one way to settle things
When business disputes arise, you can offer your clients other, maybe even better, options than litigation, if you know about alternative dispute resolution techniques like arbitration and mediation.
Arbitration and Mediation of Business Disputes provides you with the resources and tools that make it possible to resolve your clients’ business disputes while keeping their business relationships intact.
Learn from a master
Wisconsin attorney Terry Peppard, a veteran arbitrator and mediator, and past chair of the Bar’s ADR Section discusses such issues as:
- How arbitration and mediation can resolve business disputes
- Why such approaches are often better
- The best form of dispute resolution for each situation
Peppard also provides practice tips and identifies common practitioner errors – and how to avoid making them.
Arbitration: a welcome solution
Whether you’re representing a client or acting as an arbitrator, you’ll get practical advice on how issues are resolved and awards are rendered. Because arbitration is more flexible and less formal than civil litigation, you need to consider it in nearly every case. And this is exactly the quick reference you need, to get the information you want … fast!
Mediation: bringing people together
To help you skillfully prepare your case, Peppard pulls together all Wisconsin statutory law on mediation – interwoven with handy practice tips and checklists. Through his extensive analysis you’ll learn obstacles to avoid and strategies to adopt, in order to achieve a mutually acceptable resolution.
Get answers to vital questions, such as how to:
- Decide between institutional and ad hoc arbitration
- Select your arbitrator or mediator
- Use experts effectively in ADR proceedings
- Decide between facilitative and evaluative mediation
- Prepare and present your case to an arbitrator or mediator

Add to your business law library
For more help with business law topics, take a look at the other nine titles in the Wisconsin Business Advisor Series. The unique WBA series provides a comprehensive overview of issues that often arise in the course of advising business clients. That’s because in developing the series, members of the Business Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin and the editors at State Bar CLE Books identified areas of particular importance to business clients and their advisors. So the series is written by business lawyers, for business lawyers.
As an added bonus! . . .
You also receive a tabbed comprehensive index and a supplements binder. The index covers all 10 of the WBA volumes, so you can find out what’s covered, and look up the information you need quickly.
