Dispute Resolution

Avoiding costs and delay


Apart from the times where only adjudication, arbitration or litigation is inevitable, other options may provide a less painful solution.

Shilcocks can advise on the most appropriate route, be it mediation, negotiation, expert determination, or determination by a tribunal.

We can act on your behalf or can provide the appropriate person to resolve the dispute between the parties.
