Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is focused on resolving disputes without the need for court action. This approach can often be faster and less expensive, as well as being less stressful and allowing you to keep the matter private.

Two of the most common methods of ADR are mediation and collaborative law.

Mediation involves both parties involved in a dispute having a meeting (or series of meetings) with a trained, neutral mediator. The mediator will then guide the parties through discussing the points of contention and encourage them to agree a mutually acceptable solution. This approach is increasingly common for divorcing couples.

Collaborative law involves the parties in a dispute meeting to negotiate a solution, each supported by their own lawyer trained in collaborative law. This can be a useful approach when trying to sort out more complicated disputes where having the expert advice of lawyers on hand can help the matter progress smoothly while ensuring both parties’ interests are protected.

Another option is Early Conciliation (EC) via the Advisory, Conciliatory and Arbitration Service (ACAS) for employment disputes and may be worth considering if it is appropriate for your type of dispute and particular circumstances.
