[edit] Description

ADR Chambers (UK) Limited - known as “ADR Chambers” - is the UK arm of a worldwide Alternative Dispute Resolution group which has successfully settled tens of thousands of cases around the globe, from Canada to Hong Kong, over the last decade. ADR Chambers International, the parent corporation, is a world-class body.

Established in this country in 1999 to support Lord Woolf’s reforms ADR Chambers is unique among ADR providers in that it is based on a judicial panel of retired Law Lords, Lords Justices, High Court, Circuit and other retired Judges. With many judicial panel members still active in the development and administration of the law, this provides ADR Chambers with remarkable insight, contacts and capabilities.

ADR Chambers operates a substantial specialist panel of leading practising Barristers and Solicitors who are trained mediators, arbitrators or neutral evaluators, and who are dedicated to specific areas of law where they help parties resolve disputes in an expeditious and cost-effective manner. ADR Chambers is also establishing regional panels, in support of court-based mediation schemes and to meet local demand.

Panel members are independent contractors under the umbrella of ADR Chambers, a company which provides support services to the members and the clients.

ADR Chambers requires that all its members should have undergone full and appropriate training either through its own internal training programme or through a recognised mediation provider such as CEDR or ADR Group. ADR Chambers requires that all members comply with their professional body’s CPD rules and that this should include a biannual module including mediation. Full details of the ADR Chambers programme can be obtained from the Registrar on 0845 072 0111.

ADR Chambers requires all members to adhere to the EU Code of Conduct for mediators.

ADR Chambers’ services include Mediation, Arbitration, Mediation/Arbitration (Med-Arb), Neutral Evaluation, Mini-Trials and Private Final Appeals. This last is an excellent option available by consent from trial judgments in civil disputes or from Arbitral Awards. ADR Chambers also provides consultation services relating to the design of ADR systems for government and private sector organisations, Inquiries and Fact-Finding services.

ADR training of the highest order is offered with high-quality workshops for the public, and customized workshops for companies, government and law firms.

ADR Chambers’ clients are strictly confidential but instructions come from the magic circle firms, leading insurers, major corporations, governments, professional organisations, individuals and others in the business community both nationally and internationally. Many instructing solicitors and individuals have been so kind as to offer to provide testimonials to the effectiveness of our approach to ADR.

Its case load is growing rapidly with the recognition of the importance of ADR and the costs sanctions imposed by the Court – see Dunnett v Railtrack plc [2002] All ER (D) 314 CA. It is a surprising, but important, fact that in the last quarter alone, over £150 million of disputes were settled by ADR Chambers panel members.
