Dysart Taylor Arbitration

Arbitration & Mediation


Contracts routinely require parties to resolve disputes outside of a courtroom. Even parties litigating a dispute in state or federal court are customarily required to make a good faith attempt to engage in settlement discussions outside of court before further exhausting the court’s taxed resources. As a result, alternate dispute resolution (ADR) now plays a prominent role in contracts, litigation and trial law. Our attorneys are adept at handling all forms of ADR in Missouri and Kansas as well as regionally and nationally. We represent clients in meditations and binding arbitrations and serve as arbitrators and mediators. The ADR process for each client can be unique. From drafting ADR provisions at the contracting stage, to finding a solution to business or personal issues through mediation or arbitration, we strive to help clients resolve disputes in the most cost-effective manner possible.

In addition to representing clients in a substantial number of mediations and arbitrations, our attorneys have served as arbitrators and mediators in a variety of matters, including:

  • Aviation
  • Class actions
  • Construction
  • Insurance
  • Manufacturing
  • Personal injury
  • Products liability
  • Property damage
