Conflict happens — with large organizations, small private companies and in the lives of individuals. The role of Aird & Berlis is to secure a just, cost-effective and timely result for you or your organization, whether the complaint has been made by or against you.

Acting in all forms of dispute resolution — civil lawsuits, quasi-criminal proceedings, administrative proceedings, appeals, mediation, private arbitrations or other alternate dispute resolution — our litigators have a wealth of experience in efficiently and effectively representing clients involved in disputes of all types. We also offer the services of experienced mediators and arbitrators.
