Dispute Resolution FAQ

What is mediation?

If you are facing a legal dispute, your priority is to achieve resolution as quickly as possible, while still protecting your interests. When you instruct one of our dispute resolution solicitors to help you achieve this, we aim to secure the best possible outcome by whatever means are most suited to your particular case: often this is via mediation.

Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution which, if successful, can save everyone involved in the dispute a significant amount of time and money.

If mediation is right for your case we will arrange for both you and the other party involved in the dispute to attend a meeting with a qualified and trained mediator. The role of the mediator is to referee the discussion, actively promoting solutions that would be acceptable to you and your opponent. The mediator never takes sides, or passes judgment: they are simply there to help matters move forward as amicably and cost effectively as possible. Depending on your circumstances and the nature of the dispute, mediation may resolve the dispute without the need for court proceedings..


Arbitration is another technique used in Alternative Dispute Resolution. The objective of Arbitration is for both parties to resolve matters privately, outside of court. If your dispute is suitable for arbitration, both you and your opponent must agree to have your dispute heard by an independent arbitrator.

How effective is Alternative Dispute Resolution?

Using methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution can prove not only cost-effective, but time-saving. Whether or not ADR is successful however, will depend on the ability of both parties to cooperate and compromise. While arbitration can be an effective solution for those who are not able to resolve matters through mediation, it’s still important for both parties to be able to agree about taking part in the arbitration process in the first place.
