Conflict Resolution for the 21st Century

Home About Services Panelists Rules/Forms ARC News Disclosures Contact



Private dispute resolution for governmental entities provides an expeditious and equitable method to resolve both local and regional governmental conflicts. Less costly than litigation, mediation and arbitration are forums to resolve conflicts.

The types of issues for local governmental entities include municipalities, counties, school boards, special districts, and other local entities within the jurisdiction of one county created by general or special law or local ordinance.

Regional governmental entities includes regional planning councils, metropolitan planning organizations, water supply authorities that include more than one county, local health councils, water management districts, and other regional entities that are authorized and created by general or special law that have duties or responsibilities extending beyond the jurisdiction of a single county.

ARC’s recent addition of the Hon. Yvonne Burke to our distinguished panel gives us the ability to provide a wide range of experience dealing with the business and financial communities.
