Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution - Australia

Achieving favourable outcomes and settlements through alternate forms of dispute resolution

We focus our dispute resolution advice on enabling you to develop alternative dispute resolution (ADR) strategies and achieve high-quality non-litigious outcomes where appropriate.

To be effective, alternative dispute resolution should be about emphasising resolution through constructive, creative and practical advice. ADR is part of our DNA.

We are recognised as leading practitioners and advocates for ADR in all of the jurisdictions in which we operate.

Our ADR lawyers are known for their adaptability to changing circumstances and can help you find ways of achieving favourable outcomes and settlements in the face of seemingly entrenched positions.   

We represent a wide variety of corporate and financial clients across a broad range of industry sectors and in a number of jurisdictions on alternative dispute resolution options and tactics including:

  • As advocates in negotiation, mediations or conciliations (often involving multiple parties)
  • Advising in and conducting expert determinations
  • Acting in Early Neutral Evaluations
  • Acting in arbitrations as counsel or arbitrator pursuant to a variety of arbitration rules and in a number of jurisdictions.
We recognise that litigation and arbitration are expensive and destructive of business relationships. We use them where we need to, but will always look for the process, or combination of processes, to resolve disputes effectively.
"They are strategic, analytical, insightful, communicative, responsive and thorough, with great follow-through and delivery on outcomes."
