Texas Arbitrator and Mediator

Helping businesses and individuals amicably resolve legal disputes

Arbitration and/or mediation often provides more expedient, cost-effective results than going to trial.

The Law Office of I. T. King can help with cases involving:

  • Construction contracts
  • Employment contracts
  • Property law
  • Tax issues

Mediating contract clauses

Often disputes arise over the meaning of a specific clause, phrase or word within a signed contract for an ongoing project. Performance on the entire site stops while parties parse phrases and haggle over the impact of choosing one side’s interpretation over the other’s. All the while, the contract loses value, and the entire deal is placed in jeopardy. A skilled mediator can guide both parties to a resolution that clarifies the contested language and preserves the contract by incorporating any changes the new understanding requires. Tom King has the business negotiation experience to provide the even-handed guidance that leads both sides to a lasting agreement.

Arbitrating solutions

While a mediator actively participates in discussions and attempts to influence the parties, an arbitrator is a neutral observer who listens and then renders a decision. In the case of non-binding arbitration, parties are free to reject the arbitrator’s decision and escalate the dispute to trial. In binding arbitration, both sides agree going in that they will accept whatever the arbitrator decides. An arbitrator must not only be someone of unimpeachable character, but must have the business acumen to understand all the ramifications of his decision. Tom King’s unquestioned integrity makes him a good choice to arbitrate your case.

Preserving relationships

Because arbitration and mediation allow for a complete airing of grievances leading to quick, cost-effective resolutions, the process often preserves working relationships that would have been irreparably harmed through expensive, time-consuming and adversarial litigation.
