Alternative Dispute Resolution

The attorneys at Kalman & Associates are skilled advocates for our clients. In addition to our successful record of litigating a broad range of environmental matters before federal and state trial and appellate courts, we also counsel our clients in connection with court or agency-supervised privately arranged arbitrations, mediations and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including allocation proceedings among multiple potentially responsible parties (PRPs).

When faced with issues that have no conventional solution, we pursue early alternative dispute resolution strategies where those techniques would best represent our clients’ interests. Our attorneys continually explore the potential for creative, non-traditional methods of conflict resolution that obviate the need for costly, time-consuming, and uncertain litigation and yield favorable outcomes to our clients’ most daunting environmental challenges.

Kalman & Associates’ alternative dispute resolution practice provides cost-effective counseling in a wide array of environmental matters, including:

  • Direct negotiations and settlement conferences;

  • Facilitative and evaluative mediation;

  • Binding and non-binding arbitration;

  • Neutral case evaluation and expert fact finding;

  • Project neutral and dispute review board services; and

  • Administrative hearings before regulatory agencies.
