The attorneys at Van Benthem & Keulen who deal with dispute resolution do not belong to a single practice group. Dispute resolution, also known as mediation, is not so much a practice group as a specialism that proves to be of value in almost all practice areas. Our attorneys have also gained a wealth of experience with arbitration and 'binding advice' at national and international arbitration institutions. Van Benthem & Keulen has several in-house mediators, who are highly experienced in this pragmatic form of dispute resolution without litigation. They can help you resolve a dispute in a constructive manner. Faster, more effectively, and with fewer negative side-effects.
