Alternative dispute resolution (ADR)

Wherever possible, we aim to find solutions to your personal, family and business disputes using alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This means taking a non-confrontational approach designed to allow you and the person or people you are in dispute with to agree a mutually acceptable solution that serves everyone’s interests.

By avoiding the need for court action, ADR usually allows us to solve disputes faster, at a lower cost and with less conflict. This makes the process less stressful for you and also makes it easier to maintain or repair relationships with people you are in dispute with.

There are various methods we can use to solve disputes without going to court. These commonly include negotiation, mediation and collaborative law.

Negotiation – Many disputes can be solved relatively quickly once we become involved. In many cases, a simple solicitor’s letter clearly setting out your case and what you need to happen to resolve the matter is enough. In others, we may need to negotiate with the other party or their solicitor over the phone or in person to find a solution that works for everyone.

Mediation – This involves both you and the person you are in dispute with meeting with one of our trained neutral mediators to discuss the issues and agree a solution. This approach can be used for both business and personal disputes and is now the most common method for handling divorce. Divorcing couples will normally be required to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) to see if mediation if right for them before being allowed to pursue their divorce in court.

Collaborative law – Used for divorce and separation, as well as issues around children, collaborative law involves both parties meeting supported by their own lawyer trained in collaborative law. The goal is to negotiate an agreement while keeping conflict to a minimum and giving you the support of a trained legal professional at all times to ensure your interests stay protected.
