Mediation and Arbitration

San Jose Mediation and Arbitration Lawyer

Mediation and Arbitration in Computer and Other High-Tech Disputes

Nine times out of ten, a legal dispute will be solved in mediation or arbitration before trial. For this reason, it is important to select a law firm whose attorneys are experienced with alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

Located in Palo Alto, California, the intellectual property law firm of COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP routinely handles mediation and arbitration matters before the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) and the American Arbitration Association (AAA).

A Rich Perspective on Alternative Dispute Resolution

Not only are our attorneys skilled at using the specialized dispute resolution forums of arbitration and mediation to advocate for our clients' goals — several of our lawyers have themselves served as arbitrators, mediators, or early neutral evaluators. Our attorneys' experiences as decision-makers in mediations and arbitrations provide a wealth of knowledge that we are able to draw upon to help our clients.

We help our clients set attainable, real-world goals, and then we plan how best to achieve those goals given the forum chosen to resolve the dispute.

Alternative Dispute Resolution in Intellectual Property Cases

Mediation or arbitration is especially common in a few specific areas of intellectual property disputes: employment disputes, software license violations, and trade secret litigation. This is so because these relationships are often governed by agreements that specify that the parties will use arbitration — instead of a lawsuit — to resolve disagreements.

As in other areas of our practice, COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP 's attorneys work in cross-functional teams to give our clients access to the broadest range of relevant experience. Our mediation strategies are informed by the opinions of our firm's most knowledgeable courtroom lawyers.


COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP attorneys are available to represent either party in a mediation, arbitration, or early neutral evaluation. To schedule a consultation, please call us at 650.327.9800 or send us an e-mail.
