Alternative Dispute Resolution

Fowler Bell thinks outside the courtroom.





A courtroom can make for compelling drama on TV or in the movies. In real life, it’s not always the best place to resolve a commercial conflict. Sometimes success means considering options like negotiation, arbitration and mediation – thinking outside the witness box.

That’s how we’ve always thought Fowler Bell. We are creative thinkers, skilled litigators, practiced mediators and savvy business law practitioners. We have been able to guide our clients to the most practical, efficient and satisfactory approaches to resolving disputes both in and out of the courtroom.

Our litigation attorneys are respected for their integrity, their understanding of complex business and legal issues and their ability to find equitable solutions for all parties. That’s why they’re in demand throughout Kentucky as mediators in commercial third-party disputes and government matters.

Members of our Alternative Dispute Resolution Group are admitted into practice before the United States Supreme Court, the state courts of Kentucky and North Carolina, and Federal Courts of Appeal. All are designated as Certified Mediator through the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Administrative Office of the Courts.
