Our goal is to achieve practical and effective results for our clients.

Why Choose Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)?

Time efficiency: ADR generally offers faster resolution times compared to traditional court proceedings.

Preservation of relationships: Maintaining positive business relationships is crucial. ADR methods such as mediation promote open communication and collaboration, allowing parties to work together to find mutually acceptable solutions.

Flexibility and control: ADR processes are tailored to the specific needs of the parties involved, providing a degree of autonomy in seeking solutions that leads to more satisfactory outcomes.

providing a degree of autonomy in seeking solutions that leads to more satisfactory outcomes. There are various ADR options available to parties in a dispute. Below, we have listed some of them:

What is Negotiation?

The most common form of ADR is negotiation. Negotiations take place between the legal representatives of both parties seeking a solution on a “without prejudice” basis. Negotiations can be conducted in writing, by phone, or in person. Such communications cannot be mentioned or submitted in court (if it comes to that). Our experienced lawyers can represent you throughout the entire case and assist you in determining how to approach the negotiation.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is conducted with the assistance of a mediator. The involved parties appoint a mediator of their choice who helps them in resolving the dispute. The mediator attempts to facilitate an agreement between the parties and does not favour one party over another. A mediator can also be a lawyer or a professional working in the same field as the dispute.

What is Arbitration?

The decision of an arbitrator is binding on the parties. An arbitrator acts in a quasi-judicial capacity and decides on the disputed issues. The decision is based on the evidence submitted by the parties. Although arbitration is more costly than mediation, it is certainly more cost-effective than litigation.
