Our barristers are experienced in all forms alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration, adjudication, mediation and expert determination.
At Forum, we see commercial arbitration as a quick and efficient way of resolving both domestic and international disputes. We see real potential in initiatives such as the Digital Dispute Resolution Rules and the Financial Services Expedited Arbitration Procedure. Our barristers who act as counsel in arbitral tribunals are all members or fellows of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb). Because of the scope for arbitration to deliver justice more effectively than cumbersome, slow and expensive litigation through the courts, our barristers will consider taking on smaller cases on a fixed fee basis.
Adjudication offers significant benefit for parties looking for a relatively quick resolution of their construction disputes, but we also understand the time pressures that an adjudication brings. Our barristers have ample experience getting to grips with complex disputes in short time frames, acting in teams if necessary.
