Linklaters believes in offering clients an alternative to litigation.
The firm’s dispute resolution lawyers are trained in the use of every technique, including mediation, to resolve a dispute. They have a proven track record of representing parties in mediations and other forms of ADR.
A number of the litigation & arbitration team have acted as mediators in commercial disputes and know mediation from all perspectives. The firm was a founding member of CEDR (the Centre for Dispute Resolution) and uses mediation wherever appropriate for clients.
We have handled substantial numbers of mediations of professional negligence claims, for both claimants and defendants; these include several recent claims against solicitors and accountants, most of them complex multi party actions.
