Alternative Dispute Resolution
We recognise that the traditional form of dispute resolution by way of court proceedings is not the only the option available to parties in a dispute. Our commercial disputes team includes an accredited civil/commercial mediator who is on the panel of approved mediators of ADR Group, one of the UK's leading mediation providers.
In addition, Arbitration as a means of resolving sports disputes has been on a steady increase in recent years. Arbitration is a voluntary procedure where both parties agree to submit the dispute to an independent panel to make a binding decision based on the evidence presented by the parties. Its growing popularity is in no small part to the growing trend to include standard clauses in sports contracts.
