Family Mediation & Dispute Resolution Legal Advice

Schedule a FREE Initial Meeting

When settling any dispute, court proceedings should be a last resort because they are often costly and time consuming. Before turning to the courts, an alternative dispute resolution should be used, such as negotiation or mediation.

If you are involved in a dispute of any kind, whether it is at work, home or with a product or service, you may want help or advice on the best method to settle the dispute. At PDA Law, we have a team of qualified civil mediators who are experienced in providing our clients with an alternative dispute resolution suited to them.

Types of Dispute Resolution

Before resorting to the courts, there are several ways individuals and businesses can resolve their disputes. These resolutions are often quicker and easier than taking a case to court and often costs less money.

If you need help or advice on how to settle your dispute in a low-cost and efficient manner, call our expert family law team today on 01244 757325.

Alternative Dispute Resolutions available include:

  • Negotiation – the easiest form of dispute resolution, negotiation is often overlooked by both parties during a dispute. When an agreement cannot be reached, both parties should seek advice from solicitors who can help with negotiations.
  • Mediation – mediation is the most common way to settle a dispute out of court. The process of a mediation includes both parties appointing an unbiased third party to help settle the dispute. The mediator will provide an outcome that is fair for both parties.
  • Expert Determination – this process involves the inclusion of an independent party who is an expert in the subject matter in dispute. Before entering an expert determination, both parties must agree that the expert’s decision is final and legally binding.
  • Arbitration – the process of arbitration is often used to settle employment disputes such as unfair dismissal. An impartial outsider is typically used to make the final decision on a dispute.
  • Adjudication – this involves an arbiter or judge reviewing evidence and arguments in order to reach a final decision and settle upon an agreement. This decision will outline the right and obligations between both parties.

If you are unsure which dispute resolution is right for you, contact our solicitors to receive advice on how to settle your dispute.

What Our Customers Say About Us

Quick & Responsive

Honestly I would recommend PDA for any agency/landlord deposit dispute. Jane was such a dream to work with and she got me a good compensation. She was quick and responsive throughout the whole process as well as transparent. She kept me in the loop with all correspondence with the agency/landlord. She also knows her stuff. Would recommend PDA law.

They provided us with realistic timescales

It was our first time we dealt with PDA law for our conveyancing. We were recommended to them by the Property agency. We are glad we had a good experience with PDA law, especially during lockdowns and Christmas period. They made sure, they had all the paper-work in place with all searches done in time. They provided us with realistic timescales, so that there is no disappointment towards the end. Looking forward to deal with them in the near future.
