Methods of dispute resolution


Mediation is a popular dispute resolution option. With mediation, you will be in the same room as the other party involved in your dispute and an impartial mediator who will guide the conversation, highlighting the key points in each party’s argument to help you both gain a better understanding of each other’s position. If you are interested in mediation, Jackson Lees can help point you in the right direction.

Alternative dispute resolution

If your dispute cannot be resolved through mediation, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) gives you the chance to seek a legally binding decision without having to go to court to solve your property dispute. This is much more cost-effective than going to court and allows you to have more input in the overall decision. Our commercial planning dispute solicitors are experts in alternative dispute resolution, get in touch to find out more about this option.


Through arbitration, the final decision will rest with the arbitrator, and the court will then make that decision legally binding. A commercial planning dispute expert can help guide you through this process, protecting your position every step of the way.


If all other options are exhausted and your dispute is still not resolved, litigation may be necessary. You will need an expert litigator to help establish and protect your legal position and advise you on your best route to success. Litigation can be complex, and it is crucial that you work with a litigator that you trust will do everything they can to secure your desired outcome. At Jackson Lees, when it comes to litigation, our experienced team are by your side every step of the way to protect your best interests.

What happens if your claim is worth less than £10,000?

We do not accept claims that are worth less than £10,000. Claims of this value are dealt with through the ‘small claims’ court. It’s a simplified procedure allowing parties to represent themselves. You generally will not be able to recover legal fees if your claim is successful.

Clients in these cases tend to want to keep their legal fees low and may only wish to receive minimal help from a lawyer. We feel this poses a risk that we will not have all the necessary details to offer valuable advice in these matters.
