Wright Lindsey Jennings (WLJ) law firm announced Tuesday (March 28) the launch of a new mediation practice, WLJ Resolution, led by partners Scott Irby in Northwest Arkansas and Rodney Moore in Little Rock.

Irby and Moore completed a certificate program in Mediation Skills Training at Northwestern University and are certified to mediate by the Arkansas Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission. Both Irby and Moore are Certified Mediators for Arkansas Circuit Courts Civil Division, and Moore is also certified for Probate Division.

“The use of mediation by litigants and those involved in business disputes continues to increase in popularity, in part because the process allows the parties to maintain more control over the ultimate outcome,” Irby said. “Our goal with WLJ Resolution is to facilitate resolution by fully understanding the common dispute and interests of the parties.”

Irby and Moore bring more than 40 years of experience to the practice.

“Mediation presents an opportunity to creatively explore resolutions in a way not afforded in the trial process,” Moore said. “Through a facilitative mediation process, parties are able to craft more fitting and efficient resolutions than those imposed upon them at trial – often with substantial savings in cost and time.”
