Construction Arbitration and Mediation in Iowa


Midwest Construction Arbitration and Mediation Attorneys

Arbitration and mediation can save both sides in a dispute the expense and time of pursuing court action. For example, you can broker a solution that may not have been possible in a court. You may achieve a better outcome than you imagined when you employ arbitration or mediation. Attorneys will present this option to their clients as a strategically viable and potentially preferable strategy. 

Our construction attorneys in Des Moines serve as arbitrators or mediators (or advocates in either) and can help you pursue the resolution of a civil lawsuit. Whether you require a decision related to a project or business, you want a professional who can see it to conclusion.

Consider Arbitration for Your Dispute

Arbitration is a private process where a Whitfield & Eddy construction attorney works with the parties on the dispute as a third-party neutral or as your advocate. As an arbitrator, evidence and arguments are presented by the sides in a much quicker and less formal manner than in court. Further, arbitration is typically less expensive than going to trial in court. Upon completion, the arbitrator makes a binding and enforceable or non-binding decision among the parties.  

We have attorney members of the American Arbitration Association including a Fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators, a distinguished group of arbitrators whose expertise in this field of Alternative Dispute Resolution is recognized worldwide. This broad experience as arbitrators makes us even more effective when we are your advocate in an arbitration.
