Serle Court Online Resolution features in The Global Legal Post
Serle Court’s Online Resolution service, set up by John Machell QC, Jennifer Haywood, and James Mather has been highlighted in The Global Legal Post this week. Described as an ‘off-the-shelf’ service, the team offers to resolve disputes within 8- days at a fixed arbitration fee.
The initiative behind the service comes from calls by a group of senior UK judges for ‘breathing space’ in commercial contract disputes, to avoid courts becoming overwhelmed with cases. John Machell QC explains “Even where parties have not elected to arbitrate in advance of a dispute, they can do so on an ad hoc basis after the dispute has arisen; they can also agree to replace a reference to one of the arbitration bodies with an ad hoc arrangement."
