Law firm practice since graduation from law school. B.G expertise : Product liability is a challenging practice area because it involves technical details, which are unique to each case and each product. B.G believes: "Litigation is inherently challenging. Helping clients find solutions to their business disputes is an even bigger challenge. Franchise law is interesting because practitioners often handle complex legal issues while working with familiar businesses that we encounter in our everyday lives"



Assistant District Attorney. Then to private practice as an associate, specializing in commercial litigation; then on to a partnership in another firm specializing in litigation in general, and construction litigation in particular. Then, F.H approached to run for the Court of Appeals and, after some thought, decided to run. F.H won and have been here since. F.H motto: "If you love the law, you will want to reason well. And if you reason well, it will show. If it shows, and you let it be known that you want to be a judge, pretty soon your name will come up in discussions when openings occur. That's pretty much what happened to me."

Moving Arbitration Online: The Next Frontier

The way we resolve disputes, however, has not kept up with other business functions. Commercial transactions may circle the globe in milliseconds, but if a problem arises, resolutions are still largely tied to separate geographical jurisdictions and in-person, paper-bound processes. If business is now largely virtual, dispute resolution is still primarily an in-person endeavor.

One might argue that applying technology to the law with e-filing and legal process outsourcing and ABA Tech Show are sufficient to keep up with the speed of commerce. But adopting these types of technologies, which merely enable preexisting processes to work more efficiently, is insufficient.

We believe that the time has come for the law to embrace the transformative power of technology. If the law is to stay relevant to the challenges presented by global and online business, the system must be reinvented to adapt to the new realities of a networked world.

Enter Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR. ADR has long promised efficiency as one of its primary benefits. ADR can save time by expediting processes, providing expert neutrals that require less orientation, and cutting back on delaying tactics and endless discovery. Traditionally we have thought about ADR as, literally, an alternative process. There in the name it is clear that ADR is an alternative to the courts. As Harvard Law Professor and conflict resolution scholar Robert H. Mnookin has put it, ADR works “in the shadow of the law,” always acting as an alternative, never the default.

DEFAULT PROCESS FOR NETWORKED WORLD But the interesting reality is that ADR is a much better fit with the newly networked world than the more traditional models represented by the courts. Paradoxically, as business becomes more global in its effort to increase efficiency and reduce costs, existing offline legal processes tend to become less efficient and more costly. In addition, for the majority of online disputes, the courts are simply not a workable option. The amounts are so low, and the jurisdiction is so confused, that the courts are really irrelevant for most cases that arise online. A new kind of ADR, or ODR (online dispute resolution) as it is being called, offers unique benefits for this new world of cross-border and low value disputes. As Ethan Katsh, director of the Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution, has put it, “there is no A in ODR”—so ODR becomes the default process for online disputes. This new reality means that for the first time, a global redress system is being built entirely upon private dispute resolution, instead of relying on the law.
