Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) offers ways of resolving disputes which are not available through the litigation or arbitration process.
Our Alternative Dispute Resolution team deals with various methods of dispute resolution. Numerous members of the team are accredited mediators with the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR). CEDR is the largest conflict management and resolution consultancy in the world. This enables us to prepare for and run a mediation knowing in broad terms the kind of approaches a mediator will adopt.
ADR does not simply include mediation of an existing dispute but also early neutral evaluation, adjudication, and expert determination. Our team not only prepares for and represents clients at mediations and other ADR meetings, we also provide detailed advice on tactics.
We have considerable expertise using mediation in England and Wales, as well as, multi-jurisdictional disputes involving parties overseas, ranging from individuals to publicly listed companies, state-owned entities, and governments.
ADR is not a stand-alone mechanism to achieve the desired objectives for the client. Often, mediation and other techniques will be utilised in parallel or in combination with more traditional methods of litigation.
