Mediation & Arbitration

Searching for a Houston or Austin mediator in construction or business law? Our firm has extensive frontline experience in alternative dispute resolution, and we strongly believe in its benefits. Andrews Myers, P.C., is routinely called upon to mediate and arbitrate the most complex construction law and business contract disputes on behalf of clients throughout the state of Texas.
We have represented small business owners, contractors and design-build firms, subcontractors, suppliers, owners and developers in exploring opportunities to resolve legal conflicts without the expense and uncertainty of a trial. We handle binding arbitration stipulated by contract, as well as voluntary arbitration or mediation where it is a prudent and economical strategy for clients.
Premier Construction and Commercial Arbitrators in Texas and Beyond
Three of our attorneys, Bill Andrews, Tom Myers, and Carson Fisk are members of the distinguished American Arbitration Association’s National Panel of Construction Arbitrators and actively serve as arbitrators in construction cases; in 2017, Ben Westcott was also accepted into the American Arbitration Association’s Roster of Arbitrators. All are also experienced, active construction mediators. Their accumulated insights from more than 60+ years in the construction industry and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provides clients with a distinct edge. Jeff Lefkowitz, Senior Counsel at Andrews Myers within the Business Litigation practice group, is a member of the American Arbitration Association’s National Panel of Commercial Arbitrators, serving as an arbitrator in real estate, consumer and real estate valuation matters.
Recently, Bill Andrews was also selected as a member of the American Arbitration Association’s newly formed Construction Mega Project Panel, and elite panel of 50 construction arbitrators based on credentials and experience in construction mega projects throughout the United States.
We have found that incorporating early mediation of a construction case into a litigation or arbitration plan often averts a potentially contentious and costly trial or arbitration. It also provides a more private forum and faster timeline to settle conflicts. Our lawyers encourage clients to explore alternative dispute resolution options for:
- Construction claims and termination/default
- Construction/design defect claims
- Business transaction and contract disputes
- Broken real estate deals
- Construction surety and insurance coverage disputes
Our Texas ADR practice has produced notable results in resolving construction disputes short of trial. Even when these methods do not directly produce an out-of-court resolution, clients realize a tangible benefit from bringing the legal issues into tighter focus as they proceed to litigation.
