Our team aim to resolve these disputes as efficiently and amicably as possible outside of Court. If Court proceedings prove necessary, our skilled litigators will represent you with confidence. With our support, litigation does not need to be a daunting experience.
Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Mediation can be alternatives to Court proceedings.
Quicker than litigation and often cheaper than a full Court trial, ADR is a way of resolving a dispute amicably and efficiently outside of the Court system. ADR and in particular mediation help maintain personal and professional relationships. This is because the process includes both parties and deals with the most important issues.
At Burt Brill & Cardens we are able to help with mediation by:
- Providing a qualified mediator to assist in your dispute
- Arranging a venue for the mediation to take place
- Preparing the Mediation Agreement & Model Procedure
- Sharing full details of charges and our fixed price option
Dispute resolution through mediation can ensure a continuing commercial relationship, which would not be likely if the dispute went to Court. It can also preserve privacy.
It’s important to point out that dispute resolution mediation can run alongside the litigation process. Mediation takes place without prejudice to litigation while the Court action is ‘on hold,’ allowing the parties to explore a settlement in a private, confidential and neutral environment.
We are mindful that legal costs are an added consideration for our clients. Once we have helped you identify your case objective and the likely timescale, we will provide you with a clear cost breakdown for each stage. Fixed fees are also an option when workable.
