Make law-not settlements!

That was the concluding remark of our Litigation partner Benjamin Leventhal in a DRI conference panel on -whether to settle cases or not-in court and arbitration.
Adv. Leventhal insisted on the observation that court systems worldwide are missing their goal -of conducting trials in pursuit for justice- by urging parties to settle cases, whereas a common outcome of a settlement is that the client is not happy – and if so – and there is a reasonable case – why settle then?!
The panel that was held along wish international litigation colleagues Michelle Glassman Bock and Facundo Viel Temperley, and moderated by Karin Graf, was applaud by the big and distinguished audience.

Our firm launched its innovative initiatives for resolving disputes on an accelerated timetable.

“On the spot arbitration” and “on the spot family mediation”  were developed in order to provide a much needed potential solution for resolving legal disputes as quickly as possible.

“On the spot arbitration” – Years of managing legal disputes in courts and in arbitration led us to the conclusion that there is a real need for a responsible and efficient legal platform that can actually conclude legal disputes on an accelerated timetable!

Thus, our firm has established the concept of on the spot arbitration, in which the parties and their lawyers may initiate and conclude their legal dispute in a fast track procedure within 30 days, which is also focused and efficient – after which they obtain a binding legal arbitral award.

“On the spot family law mediation” – An innovative initiative of on the spot mediation, in which the parties may exhaust any possibility for resolution of their legal dispute through a fast track mediation process within 30 days.

The fast track mediation was initiated in order to provide an actual real time cost effective alternative to long lasting and not necessarily positive dramatic procedures in family law courts, and in order to provide the parties with a precise timetable, that in many cases, in the absence of such a precise timetable and mediation framework, may otherwise terminate any chance of settlement or agreement
