Mediation & other ADR

The cost, uncertainty and stress of a dispute mean that most are thankfully settled before they reach the courtroom through some kind of ADR process.  Every litigation specialist in our firm has been specifically trained in ADR and has expertise in advising clients on all aspects of it.

We act regularly for clients in preparing and presenting their claims in all ADR settings including mediation, negotiation, expert determination, conciliation, adjudication and Early Neutral Evaluation, across sectors as diverse as financial services, biotechnology and construction.  Our extensive experience (we estimate that across the team we have conducted at least 200 mediations) means that you can be sure that you are in safe hands.

Our approach to ADR is rooted in detailed tactical preparation, a clear understanding and discussion with you of the pros and cons of each form of ADR and a clear-eyed understanding of your aims, objectives and cost risks.

Deployed properly, ADR can be a valuable means not just to settle on preferential terms, but also to probe your opponent’s case to gain a tactical advantage to secure settlement in the future or to help prepare your case for trial.
