At JMW, we offer legal advice and assistance on a wide range of issues pertaining to commercial litigation and dispute resolution, including:
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures have the significant benefit of enabling you to avoid court proceedings, therefore, reducing disruption to business and saving money on litigation costs. We are highly experienced in all dealings relating to ADR and will listen to your needs and pursue the appropriate method of resolving your dispute with the minimum of hassle and cost to you and your company.
The main options when it comes to ADR procedures are:
Adjudication is a process during which parties in dispute appoint a person to consider the evidence and arguments submitted by both, which then results in a decision that determines the rights and obligations of each party.
Arbitration is a private procedure and form of alternative dispute resolution. It involves the use of an independent third party, commonly known as an arbitrator, and is in many cases an agreeable alternative to legal proceedings. It can be a useful tool in resolving business disputes of all kinds.
Mediation is one of the most commonly-used methods of ADR and has a high rate of success in all kinds of commercial disputes and other business disagreements. Mediation can take place at any stage once a dispute has arisen (provided the parties agree to mediate), including after the commencement of legal proceedings.
Conciliation involves the appointment of a third party to help steer negotiations towards an amicable conclusion and, ultimately, achieve a settlement. For more information about this area of law and the services we offer, head to our conciliation page.
