At Brodies we understand when litigation is the best option for our clients, but also when their interests are best served by resolution of disputes through alternative channels.
In a market where reputational risk, confidentiality, flexibility of process, speed of resolution and cost control play increasingly significant roles in the approach to business and decision making, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is becoming increasingly popular.
Our ADR practice reflects the needs of our clients, and we continue to invest in the development of our practice and the skills of our specialist lawyers in this area. Our lawyers are able to deal with disputes and to provide support and guidance to clients on a local, national and international level.
Brodies provides good litigation and dispute advice in a commercial context and not in a legal vacuum. They compare favorably to other law firms in their ability to debate strategy on how to achieve an acceptable outcome rather than advising on what the contract does or doesn’t say.Legal 500 UK 2021
