Parties before a tribunal reviewed by the Federal Circuit may be able to resolve their disputes short of litigation through mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution available in that forum. While these programs share some similarities, there are also differences depending on the court or other tribunal in which the claim is brought. One of the keys to successful resolution of claims through alternative dispute resolution methods is understanding the particular rules and best practices that apply. Join us as our distinguished panel explores mediation and other alternative dispute resolution programs available in the various tribunals from which an appeal is taken to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
