Dispute Resolution - key facts

Disputes are a drain on resources you could do without.

They can also be stressful and risky if they go wrong.

If you’ve experienced any of the things below, you’ll know what we’re talking about:

Employee issues
• Late payments or non-payments from customers
• Suppliers who let you down
• Business Contracts that go wrong
• Shareholder disputes
• People stealing your secrets or ignoring your rights

How LawBite can help

Our dispute resolution lawyers can provide you with expert guidance and reassurance, whether you or your company are bringing or defending any legal claim notified under the relevant Pre Action Protocol or if issued in the civil Courts (‘Litigation’).

We can help with business dispute resolution and private dispute resolution advising on the relevant legal issues through to compliance with the relevant Pre-Action Protocol and representing you in court litigation. Our expert dispute resolution team will review prospects and advise on strategies to resolve the dispute at a reasonable cost.

Our dispute lawyers comply with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Standards and Regulations regarding requirements to notify clients of the likely cost of proceedings and funding options including Third Party Litigation funding.

Alternative Dispute Resolution


Alternative Dispute Resolution (‘ADR’) methods don’t involve the civil Courts and are intended to be cheaper, faster and less formal. Our corporate dispute lawyers will always consider this option as an alternative to costly court litigation as the parties are free to tailor the process to suit their needs and reach settlement on a confidential basis whilst maintaining positive business relationships.

Mediation


Mediation is a process whereby a neutral mediator is appointed by the parties’ dispute resolution lawyers to assist them to facilitate a settlement agreement. The process is entirely confidential and can resolve the dispute before either party turns to litigation. Our dispute resolution lawyers will identify and agree a suitable mediator and guide you through the process.

Other Dispute Resolution Options


Early neutral evaluation (ENE) and Expert determination are other forms of ADR. The dispute resolution solicitors appoint an independent person to provide a non-binding opinion on the merits (ENE), and, in Expert Determination, an expert is appointed to determine an issue, usually of a technical nature.  This is particularly useful if an expert opinion may help break the deadlock.
