Barristers at Cloisters recognise that going to court or tribunal is by no means the only way of resolving disputes. Alternative means of dispute resolution are becoming increasingly important, particularly at work, in commerce and sport. Evidence is growing that mediations are a cheaper and more satisfactory way for clients to secure acceptable outcomes in resolving disputes.
