Bertrand are experienced Colorado business attorneys practicing primarily in the areas of Commercial Litigation including Life Settlement, Insurance Fraud, corporate law, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and commercial finance.

Often we work through referrals from lawyers outside our firm to represent clients with “unusual” litigation cases. Our tailored approach extends to all general business, construction, and real estate issues – through mediation, arbitration and litigation.

Mediationcan be conducted voluntarily or may be required by court order during litigation. During Mediation, the Mediator reviews the facts and circumstances of the case in conjunction with determining the parties’ needs and/or abilities to resolve the matter. Mediationis a useful alternative to costly and expensive litigation. The purpose of Mediationis to assist the parties in agreeing to a resolution of the issues.
Arbitration is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution where two or more parties meet in front of a third-party decision-maker, the Arbitrator, for a determination of an Arbitration Award after a presentation of the facts of the case. The Arbitrator reviews the facts, hearing testimony, reviews evidence and documents, listens to each parties’ arguments, and then determines the Arbitration Award. After obtaining an award, a party may generally seek enforcement of the award in court.
