Alternative Dispute Resolution
OVERVIEW

The attorneys in Maynard Cooper’s Alternative Dispute practice have valuable experience offering an innovative and cost-effective approach to representing clients in any stage of a dispute. The litigation process culminating in a jury trial is a traditional means of resolving disputes. In many cases, litigation may not be the most desirable option for dispute resolution; mediation and arbitration proceedings are often the more attractive alternative.

Several of our attorneys are highly skilled as mediators and arbitrators:

  • H. Thomas “Tommy” Wells, Jr. is active in the American Bar Association, having served as the Association’s President in 2008-2009. His skills as a litigator have been highly recognized throughout the years, including being listed in The Best Lawyers in America© and one of Alabama’s Top Ten attorneys in Super Lawyers®. He is a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the Litigation Counsel of America and the American College of Environmental Lawyers.
  • Thomas “Tom” W. Thagard, III is a registered Arbitrator and Mediator with the Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution and a Certified National Commercial Arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association. Tom’s reputation as a skilled litigator has been widely recognized by numerous legal industry publications and organizations. He is named by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business as a Leading Individual in the area of Commercial Litigation, and Super Lawyers named him to the 2016 & 2017 Mid-South Super Lawyers for Business Litigation and the 2015 “Top 50 Alabama Super Lawyers”.
