Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) enables all parties involved to take advantage of a speedy, cost effective and confidential service, which gives greater control to the parties than they would have in the conventional civil court processes. Facilitated ADR is particularly helpful in multi-party claims, when settlement negotiations have encountered difficulties; in cases where one or more parties would benefit from the involvement of a neutral and independent third party; or when there is an ’inequality of arms’.
12KBW ADR provides a professional and effective ADR service to both existing and new clients. Although we are known, in particular, in the fields of personal injury and related areas, 12KBW ADR provides a service covering all areas of law, and dealing with all kinds of legal disputes, including those with an international dimension.
Through our 15 accredited mediators and our arbitrators (all of whom are either mediators and / or have judicial experience), 12KBW Mediation and 12KBW Arbitration provide real alternatives to the conventional court process.
In addition, the 12KBW Early Neutral Evaluation offers an imaginative and cost effective early decision making process, which will normally lead to a rapid resolution of a claim.
We have extensive mediation and arbitration facilities, which are capable of accommodating multi-party actions. The facilities are fully accessible to clients with physical disabilities. The use of 12KBW’s mediation and arbitration facilities is included in the fee for our mediation or arbitration services. We also have video conferencing facilities which can be used if necessary.
