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

Stay current with the latest version:

Useful bonus material

As with the first edition, this second edition has several practical appendices, including the relevant Wisconsin statutes, the Revised Uniform Arbitration Act, the Uniform Mediation Act, and ethics codes for arbitrators and mediators.

Get a good grounding in the methods of settling disputes that are becoming more popular with business clients with Arbitration and Mediation of Business Disputes.

Organized to save you time

You’ll find that Arbitration and Mediation of Business Disputes is packed with relevant case law, time-saving practice tips, checklists, cautions, caveats, sample language, and practice guides. Citation is easy with a table of cases, a table of statutes, regulations, and rules, plus a complete index. You’ll also appreciate the standard system of internal section numbering for easy cross-reference.
