ADR stands for Alternative Dispute Resolution and to the term refers to various methods available to parties to attempt to resolve their claims before (and hopefully without the need to) go to trial.
A mediation is attended by the parties together with their legal representation. It is held in a location agreed by the parties and none of the parties need meet at the mediation if they do not wish to. The process is entirely voluntary, meaning if the parties agree to it then it is often a good indication that they want to resolve matters without the need for a trial.
Our specialist inheritance lawyers are keen advocates of the mediation process as we have found it to be hugely successful in resolving these claims. We have considerable experience and expertise in the mediation process gained from successful mediations for our clients over many years.
Are there Other Benefits to Mediation?
The benefits of mediation for inheritance claims also extend to:
- It is often more cost effective that proceeding to trial.
- A mediation can usually be arranged more quickly than a Court would hear the parties case at trial.
- Matters which are important to the parties but which would not be cost effective to litigate can be determined at mediation i.e. the scattering of assets or disposal of sentimental items of little to no financial value.
- It is confidential
