With court closures expected to continue, and the prospect of a jury trial far in the distance, Chicago’s largest alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provider has now become Chicago’s largest virtual courthouse through our new ADR Systems Pretrial Program.
“This program is a response to the unprecedented moment that our judicial system is in,” said Marc Becker, president of ADR Systems. “With limited access to courts, how can attorneys engage in the pretrial conferences that help them resolve so many disputes before trial?”
Through the new ADR Systems Pretrial Program, attorneys can schedule a two-hour virtual session with a select group of experienced neutrals to help them settle matters in suit – or not in suit – at a significantly discounted rate. Parties may agree to turn the session into a binding process with high-low parameters, and no minimum number of cases is required to participate in the program.
This program will be administered through ADR Systems’ remote videoconferencing options, which include Zoom, CourtCall and Skype, to ensure the health and safety of all involved in the dispute resolution process.
“Programs like this make access to dispute resolution for matters that would find their resolution in pretrial conferences still attainable, even when it seemed that could not happen,” said Becker. “We’re eager to be a part of the solution, helping attorneys and their clients with their cases at a time of such uncertainty.”
