Mediation / ADR
First and foremost our barristers are advocates who are in court daily fighting their clients’ cases. However, there are times where court is not the best way to resolve a dispute. Sometimes people want to deal with matters in a more private or specialist forum, or want to reach an agreement amicably to preserve relationships. We are very experienced in negotiating and reaching settlements out of court, in drafting suitable court orders and in advising on enforcement of those orders if necessary.
We have expertise in all of the most widely used methods of alternative dispute resolution – mediation, arbitration and adjudication. Our members can advise and represent clients in ADR, and can advise on the most suitable process to use. A number of our members are also qualified mediators and arbitrators, and can be appointed in those roles to help parties reach a resolution to their disputes.
