Gunster is dedicated to facilitating the resolution of complex disputes. Our statewide Dispute Resolution practice covers a wide array of disciplines. Many of our attorneys function as mediators, arbitrators, special masters/magistrates and early neutral evaluators.
Our mediators include Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediators, Florida Supreme Court Certified Appellate Mediators and other neutrals who draw upon their litigation or transactional experience when striving to deliver creative assistance to achieve a consensual settlement for the parties. The firm’s arbitrators include Florida Supreme Court Qualified Arbitrators who endeavor to carefully analyze the legal issues presented with the objective of mitigating unnecessary expense or delay.
Our attorneys sometimes serve as special masters/magistrates, who conduct pretrial discovery proceedings, issue preliminary rulings and make findings and reports for the benefit of the court. The firm’s attorneys who act as early neutral evaluators are retained pre-litigation or early-litigation and focus on assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a case and enhancing direct communication between the parties to hopefully locate common ground.
Gunster provides alternative dispute resolution services concerning complex business disputes, estate and trust disputes, real estate and construction disputes, securities disputes and many other areas. Our neutrals are committed to do their best to help the parties work towards a resolution.
