Alternative Dispute Resolution & Mediation

In the ever-changing landscape of litigation, you need attorneys that can mediate, arbitrate, or other means to more efficiently resolve cases.  That is why the Carruthers & Roth litigation practice isn’t locked into a “trial only” mindset, but aggressively looks for means to reach a resolution that makes business sense. We have a successful track record in alternative resolution of matters before federal and state courts, administrative bodies, licensing boards, and arbitration associations. 

Two members of our team – Jack Bayliss and Richard Vanore – have been certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission to conduct mediated settlement conferences in cases appearing before the North Carolina Superior Court. This training gives our team an edge in reaching a resolution
