Alternative Dispute Resolution
For general details of our commitment to seeking to resolve disputes, where possible, by non-adjudicative processes click to view Mediation & ADR under Dispute Resolution.
Mediation is now an essential part of the dispute resolution armoury as is apparent from the mandates of the disputes boards and panels often set up for major projects. We have a wealth of mediation experience in the construction context, both in the conduct of mediations on behalf of clients and administering them as mediator. We recognise that the presentation of cases before a mediator is a very different skill from appearing before a judge, arbitrator, or adjudicator. We carefully consider with our clients the form that that presentation should take and the tactics to adopt at the mediation itself. Preparation is absolutely of the essence.
