Don’t litigate, Arbitrate ...

Follow the Pre-action Protocols ...

The Pre-action protocols require parties to use arbitration. They state:


“Litigation should be a last resort. As part of this Protocol, the parties should consider whether negotiation or some other form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) might enable them to resolve their dispute without commencing proceedings. 9.1.2  Some of the options for resolving disputes without commencing proceedings are— (c) arbitration, a third party deciding the dispute; and (d) early neutral evaluation, a third party giving an informed opinion on the dispute.”
