Choosing the Best Method to Resolve Your Dispute

Deciding whether arbitration, mediation or litigation is the most appropriate method to resolve a commercial dispute can be a daunting and potentially confusing task. With a great deal of experience in each area, we have put together our arbitration and mediation frequently asked questions to help.


The Difference Between Arbitration and Mediation Services

Naturally, there will be commercial disputes where mediation is not an appropriate method of resolution. However, mediation tends to be the most attractive option for businesses looking to resolve a dispute as the outcome can be mutually beneficial. Mediation also tends to be more cost effective than arbitration, as it takes less time.

Arbitration may be the best option when both parties cannot come to an amicable agreement. This can happen when negotiations break down or where one, or both parties are being particularly difficult. Arbitration is still a cheaper option to litigation, but it can be more time consuming and subsequently more costly than mediation.


Conducting an Arbitration or Mediation

With offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham we have meeting rooms available to conduct an arbitration or mediation.

Our experienced arbitrator, Nigel Puddicombe, can be appointed by the parties to determine a dispute. Alternatively our trained mediators, Nigel, Huw Morgan and Bettina Rigg can be appointed to help the parties reach their own settlement to a dispute.

Our experienced solicitors provide a full range of dispute resolution legal services, including arbitration, debt recovery, litigation, judicial review, mediation, professional negligence and reputation management.
