Alternative Dispute Resolution Barristers
Our alternative dispute resolution barristers and associates can advise on appropriate choices available, from adjudicative options such as arbitration or expert determination, to non-adjudicative options such as mediation, early neutral evaluation (‘ENE’) or conciliation. We can offer advice as to when alternative dispute resolution may be appropriate or not, and what manner of alternative dispute resolution may best suit your particular circumstances.
Alternative dispute resolution has become an important alternative to litigation in recent years, with the judiciary and clients show a growing awareness of the potential advantages of alternative dispute resolution. Arbitration of course has a long and distinguished history as an alternative adjudicative procedure to litigation. Appointments of arbitrators can be made either under various institutional rules, or directly by private party appointment, and our members have experience under a variety of institutional rules.
Courts have demonstrated that they are increasingly willing to sanction parties who unreasonably fail to engage in alternative dispute resolution, while in the UK the key Jackson reforms concerning costs management and proportionality have emphasised alternative dispute resolution’s importance.
