CPM uses the unique nature of arbitration to resolve construction disputes.
It is no surprise that surveys confirm more than 97% of business executives favor greater use of alternative dispute resolution methods including arbitration and mediation. These executives feel that conventional litigation is unnecessarily time consuming, expensive and wasteful.
As originally conceived, the arbitration process can begin much faster than litigation, with hearings starting as soon as 90 days after commencement of the process. Streamlined procedures are designed to reduce the time-consuming bureaucratic paper-shuffling burdens of formalized rules of evidence, discovery and the litigation itself. Perhaps most importantly, a qualified arbiter experienced in the subject matter of a dispute is far better equipped to deal with complicated specialized issues than a jury or inexperienced trial judge struggling in an unfamiliar area.
The ideals of the arbitration process are powerful, but can be quickly lost if they are not driven to their best effect.
Members of CPM are trained arbiters and experienced experts in the arbitration venue . Our understanding of the unique dynamics of the entire arbitration process gives us the insight necessary to position our clients to their best advantage. CPM can offer important information relating to the form of arbitration agreement, use of the process as it was originally intended, changes to the standard procedure that should be considered, proposed changes that should not be allowed, and even the hearing process itself. We work with the belief that intimate knowledge of the process will return control of their own destiny back to our clients.
