Orgain, Bell, & Tucker’s offices in downtown Houston and Beaumont, Texas provide a convenient forum for arbitrations and mediations.
A core principle of mediation is that the parties ‘control’ the outcome, rather than it being imposed upon them. The mediator will facilitate dialogue and communication between the parties in a structured way assisting them to reach a voluntary settlement. The mediator has no decision making power so the dispute is resolved on the parties’ own terms.
Mediation is a flexible, speed and confidential process that can be used to resolve a wide variety of disputes. The goal of this non-binding procedure is to reach an enforceable agreement resolving a dispute.
Arbitration has become widespread, both within the United States and internationally. To meet this demand, Orgain, Bell & Tucker offers arbitration services in a variety of forms, under various sets of rules. Our arbitration service seeks to provide some benefits of arbitration—speed, confidentiality, cost-efficiency, customization, and enforceability—while also offering the benefits of litigation—appropriate discovery and principled decision making based on law.
Parties requiring efficient dispositions of major and complex disputes will find arbitration at Orgain, Bell & Tucker, an effective vehicle for accomplishing those objectives, thereby avoiding unnecessary costs and uncertainties. The role of an arbitrator is similar to that of a judge, though the procedures can be less formal than in a courtroom. In addition to maintaining high ethical standards of conduct required of arbitrators and the highest quality of performance, prompt and effective case management is one of the goals of our arbitration services.
