At P.A Duffy & Co Solicitors, our experienced and professional solicitors understand the everyday pressures that come with running a business, especially when faced with some form of dispute, whether it be financial or otherwise.
Traditional litigation is not always necessary and can be avoided, especially as the first call of action. Our specialist and efficient alternative dispute resolution team at P.A. Duffy & Co. recognises the growing trend in favour of utilising Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to settle disputes quickly, cost-effectively, and stress-free for business owners.
Mediation: In mediation, a neutral third party, known as the mediator, assists the disputing parties in finding a mutually agreeable solution. The mediator facilitates communication and helps the parties identify common ground.
Arbitration: Arbitration involves submitting the dispute to a neutral third party, the arbitrator, who makes a binding decision. Arbitration can be less formal than a trial, and the rules and procedures can be tailored to the parties' needs.
Adjudication: Adjudication is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) commonly used in construction and related industries. It involves the appointment of an impartial third-party adjudicator who makes quick and provisional decisions on disputes that arise during construction projects.
