Dealing with disputes during Coronavirus lockdown

The implications of Coronavirus are so wide-ranging that businesses could struggle to meet their contractual requirements, leading to disputes.

At a time when the courts are severely restricted in their ability to hear cases, you may wish to consider arbitration, mediation or adjudication as a way forward.

In addition to being faster and more cost effective than formal court intervention, these forms of alternative dispute resolution can be progressed using emails and video conferencing, without the need for face-to-face meetings

If you are threatened with litigation as a consequence of being unable to meet your obligations or you are involved in a dispute because a supplier or customer has failed to meet their obligations, our specialist lawyers can help.
