As media- tion, arbitration, med-arb, circles, enquiries and negotiation rose up over time the "A" has gener- ally been dropped from the name. DR has gone mainstream. Arguably, courtroom litigation has become the alternative, especially in jurisdictions that have mandatory mediation. e Lexpert- ranked lawyers in this publication are trained and experienced in a wide range of DR contexts. Since many of these contexts are confidential, the law- yers in there with each other have exclusive seats from which to observe each other in action, and turn their observations into voting on the Lexpert peer-ranked Surveys. e results can provide you with valuable insight.
