At Devereux we recognise that the interests of our clients are often better served by pursuing alternatives to litigation and consider Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), by means of mediation or arbitration, mediation to be an integral part of the dispute resolution landscape.   The key is to understand the dispute from the perspective of the other side and look for a client-centred solution.  ADR can often provide a resolution to a dispute that appears to be intractable or where traditional financial solutions are not a complete answer.  It is particularly effective where the costs of litigating are disproportionate to either or both sides to a dispute.

Members of Chambers are active participants in the ADR process, whether as advisors, representatives or mediators/arbitrators. Members of Chambers have experience of all other types of ADR including binding and non-binding neutral evaluation.

A number of the team sit as an arbitrator for PIcARBS, the Personal Injury claims Arbitration Service.

HH Jeffrey Burke QC and HH Peter Clark, having retired from the judiciary, recently rejoined Chambers as associate members to augment our alternative dispute resolution offering.

Robert Glancy QC is a practising CEDR accredited mediator.
