Alternative Dispute Resolutiion
We recognise that litigation is not always the best course of action. We take time to understand your circumstances, motivations and desired outcomes and will recommend alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiation, mediation, adjudication and arbitration if we think that’s appropriate. These services differ from traditional litigation in that they are often cheaper, quicker and more flexible than court proceedings. We have experience of being involved in ADR processes across a variety of sectors including employment, family and property, and have accredited mediators in the team.
We are a ‘go to’ team for providing legal opinions on tricky questions of law and strategic advice on how to try to prevent disputes arising. If you’re concerned about a situation but court proceedings haven’t yet been raised, by all means get in touch – it is rarely too early to instruct us.
Our team has expertise across all types of disputes and can support you reach a desirable conclusion on such matters. Get in touch to find out how we can help you.All team
