Alternative Dispute

Wilberforce Akello as a firm is actively involved in a wide variety of alternative dispute resolution processes, practices, and techniques. Arbitration and mediation are the best known and most frequently used types of ADR.but not the only ones. As a firm, we hold the view that a negotiated settlement is worth pursuing before investing time and money in full blown civillitigation. This is essentially the reason why the firm has invested highly in its Alternative Dispute Resolution Department.
The following are the areas of ADR that we deal with;

A. Abitration
Arbitration is the process of referring a dispute to an impartial intermediary chosen by the parties who agree in advance to abide by the arbitrator’s award that is issued after a hearing at which all parties have the opportunity to be heard. Arbitration resembles traditional civil litigation in that a neutral intermediary hears the disputants’ arguments and imposes a final and binding decision that is enforceable by the courts. One difference is that in arbitration the disputants elect to settle any future disputes by arbitration before a dispute actually arises, whereas with civillitigation the judicial system is generally chosen by a disgruntled party after a dispute has materialized.

Robson Harris has successfully arbitrated several arbitration matters and continues to represent various individual and corporate clients in many other ongoing arbitration matters. The firm has a team of highly competent arbitrators who are always willing and ready to provide their services with utmost professionalism and diligence.

b. Meditation
Mediation is a rapidly growing ADR technique. It consists of assisted negotiations in which the disputants agree to enlist the help of a neutral intermediary, whose job it is to facilitate a voluntary, mutually acceptable settlement. Unlike arbitrators, mediators lack the power to impose a decision on the parties if they fail to reach an agreement on their own
