Alternative Dispute Resolution
The team at Gherson are experts in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). ADR is now increasingly being used by a number of parties to resolve their disputes out of Court. We will manage the dispute resolution process efficiently and effectively using ADR procedures such as arbitration, mediation, adjudication and expert determination. Our aim at Gherson is to get the best result possible for a client at a reasonable and acceptable cost. ADR can therefore be a valuable tool for a client not only to save costs but to de-risk a dispute at an early stage.
At Gherson we understand that IP rights are a key asset to many individuals and businesses. Therefore, we understand that protecting those rights is extremely important. We are able to advise, and put strategies in place, for any matters relating to the infringement of a client’s IP rights. We can also defend clients who have claims for IP infringement made against them.
