Whether your organisation is currently involved in a dispute or you are anticipating a problem, the dispute resolution solicitors at Wellers can provide swift action and pragmatic solutions to mitigate the stress and cost typically associated with commercial litigation.
Our litigation and dispute resolution team is one of the best in London and the South East and we can advise you on the right course of action in the following areas:
- Alternative Dispute Resolution
When your business or organisation is involved in a dispute it has the potential to stall productivity and become costly – in monetary terms, causing workforce stress, loss of goodwill, and possible damage to your business’s reputation.
By using alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, arbitration and negotiation, you may not need to go to court and disputes can often be resolved with a “round table” approach which is beneficial for all parties.
However, if ADR is unsuitable for your situation or if this approach fails, Wellers litigation solicitors are fully prepared to take robust legal action on your behalf. Please visit our Alternative Dispute Resolution page to find out more.
