CAMS offers alternative dispute resolution by highly experienced lawyers.  ADR services provide greater efficiency to the disputing parties in and out of the court arena. CAMS’ ADR services are professionally and financially competitive with other ADR providers.

All CAMS arbitration and mediation cases are self-administered by CAMS neutrals who manage the case directly and schedule sessions, conferences and hearings to streamline the ADR process and reduce costs for the parties.

Unlike almost all other ADR providers, CAMS does not charge filing fees.

The parties may choose to use CAMS’ user-friendly mediation or arbitration rules to conduct their case.  With the consent of the arbitrator and mediator, the parties may also select rules and procedures of other major ADR providers.  In the absence of an agreement on which rules will apply, the applicable CAMS rules and procedures will be deemed to be the default rules adopted by the parties.
