Parties to contentious disputes are required by the Courts to deal with cases in a cost effective manner and encouraged to take steps to avoid trial if at all possible. There are now few disputes that will proceed all the way to a trial without the parties having engaged in some form of alternative dispute resolution, or ADR as it is commonly known.

Our solicitors are experienced in the use of various methods of ADR, including mediation, negotiation and early neutral evaluation, and we have a strong record of successfully using such methods to resolve disputes in a cost-effective manner for our clients.

All cases are assessed as to their suitability for settlement by ADR and our lawyers are able to advise clients as to the most appropriate ADR technique that best meets their needs and circumstances.
