What is alternative dispute resolution?
Alternative dispute resolution is the process of settling contentious matters without the need to go to court. There are many different ways that this can take place – depending on the circumstances, negotiations may take place face-to-face or individually. This process is carried out with the support of unbiased mediators who guide the negotiations and work to ensure that the parties in the dispute continue working towards a satisfactory conclusion.
In many cases, parties will merely assume that disputes should be settled through the court system. In fact, Civil Procedure Rules require parties to engage in mediation before the case will proceed to court. In addition to being a requirement, alternative dispute resolution offers a quicker, cheaper and less stressful method of resolving disputes. With the right legal support, alternative dispute resolution will be successful in the majority of cases. Our solicitors have a proven track record in achieving successful outcomes for clients right across the dental profession.
