ADR / Mediation
As commercial lawyers, our primary aim, when instructed in any legal dispute, is to produce a result favourable for our client without resorting to a trial or even legal proceedings. One way of avoiding the costs and expense of a full trial is for the parties to agree to have the dispute settled by mediation or arbitration. Both are quicker, more informal and almost always less costly means of settling disputes. There are also other alternative dispute resolution routes available. We will always advise our clients as soon as possible whether such a route could work for them.
