Alternative Dispute Resolution Services

As litigation lawyers with many decades of experience in commercial, construction, estates and insolvency disputes, we know that sometimes the best results are achieved outside of the court room. Often an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) approach, such as mediation, achieves better results than going to court, and in many cases will be faster, more confidential and less costly than proceeding with conventional litigation.

What is mediation?
