Alternative Dispute Resolution

For some time the parties in civil disputes have been required to attempt to settle their disputes before resorting to litigation. With the introduction of rules significantly limiting recovery of legal costs, there is an added incentive for parties to use ADR mechanisms. As a result, mediation has grown in importance over the last decade or so.

As mediation has become more widespread, members have developed expertise and experience in this practise area. They frequently advise and represent parties in mediations.

Our members also act for parties involved in different forms of ADR, such as early neutral evaluation and expert determination.

We also have a number of trained mediators and who have experience of mediating civil and commercial disputes.

In Addition, chambers can arrange mediation venues if required.
