Alternative dispute resolution (ADR)

Litigation should be a last resort. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can be used to settle disputes without the cost and delay of court proceedings. It’s not just the savings in time and money that makes ADR attractive.

Where there is a continuing commercial relationship between the parties then reaching a settlement through ADR may be a preferred alternative to litigation.

Our lawyers include trained mediators, who will undertake mediation either before any formal proceedings begin, in parallel with the proceedings or under the terms of the parties’ agreement.

Mediation is just one type of ADR we offer. Others include:

  • Independent expert determination
  • Arbitration
  • Adjudication
  • Without prejudice meetings
