Arbitration is increasingly significant as a means for resolving commercial disputes and we act as advocates in both domestic and international arbitrations across our core practice areas. In addition, we have experienced arbitrators, who are members of many of the specialist arbitration panels, and who sit both in the UK and abroad. We can also provide adjudicators, legal assessors and expert witnesses to give evidence on questions of English law in overseas jurisdictions.

Mediation is now regarded as a crucial step by parties who wish to resolve their disputes quickly and in a way that will minimise damage to long term commercial relationships. We appreciate that different skills and priorities are often necessary to bring about a successful outcome through mediation and we have considerable experience both as advisors behind the scenes and in representing clients at mediations. We have a number of accredited and experienced mediators across the full range of our expertise.
