There are many alternatives to issuing formal Court proceedings, such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration and adjudication. Our advocates are aware of the positive and negative issues to be discussed with our clients prior to trying to resolve disputes by using an alternative method. We have experience of advising on and attending mediations, which are the most popular method of alternative dispute resolution, being quicker and more flexible procedures than the Court process.
We also have a qualified mediator - accredited with ADR Group - who has mediated on various cases and can use his experience and knowledge in this area for the benefit of any client who wishes to resolve a dispute by way of mediation, either prior to or during Court proceedings.
