Resolving a commercial dispute with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an effective method to settle legal disputes. Usually it means a shorter timeframe to resolution which in turn means less costs and the elimination of costs associated with a court hearing.
We will guide you through the best ADR process for you, whether that is by following the most formal route of Arbitration or taking the more informal route of Mediation.
Resolving a commercial dispute through Arbitration
During Arbitration an independent and legally qualified third party or member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators will make a legally binding decision on your case. We will work with you to prepare all the necessary documentation and evidence and represent your case to the Arbitrator.
Resolving a commercial dispute through mediation
Often a commercial dispute can be resolved through mediation. This is a method where an impartial third party Mediator facilitates a discussion between the claimant and the defendant. It is more flexible than a court hearing and its aim is to find an amicable settlement for both parties.
Here at HRJ Foreman Laws Solicitors, we will work closely with you to prepare for the mediation. We will also attend the mediation with you and advise you on the settlement proposals from the opposing party.
Acting for you in the County Court or High Court
Lengthy commercial litigation can be a financial and emotional drain on a business. Added to this is the possible damage to reputation and loss of customers. Here at HRJ Foreman Laws Solicitors, we will always advise you on the best outcome for your business from a financial and reputation perspective.
If after exploring arbitration and mediation, it is decided that Court proceedings are necessary, we are also fully experienced in representing both claimants and defendants in the County Court and High Court. If you need advice on a Commercial litigation matter contact us today.
