William Fry is a leader in domestic and international alternative dispute resolution (ADR), both commercial and public.
We recognise that our clients often prefer to attempt to resolve their disputes on more favourable terms rather than litigate or are referred to ADR by the courts. We use a range of ADR methods to settle disputes for clients to generate savings and achieve their commercial objectives in the process.
ADR mechanisms also have the advantage of being confidential. We have in-depth understanding of all the processes and can identify the best and most experienced individuals to resolve the dispute.
We have extensive expertise in all types of ADR mechanisms and have qualified arbitrators and mediators within the group. Our lawyers have a reputation in the industry as tough but solution-focused negotiators and advisers.
We have links to the leading domestic and international ADR institutions, panels and centres for excellence including Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, (CIArb) Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), Irish Commercial Mediators Association (ICMA) Friarylaw/ADR Group, International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Law Society of Ireland and One Resolve.
