Alternative Dispute Resolution
Mediation is changing and 2TG is at the forefront of that change. The year on year increase in the use of mediation to settle civil and commercial disputes reflects the fact that the majority of parties involved in legal disputes are using mediation as either a complete alternative to litigation or as part of their legal process.
2TG’s team of accredited mediators use their background as successful civil and commercial practitioners to provide an exceptional service as mediators in all areas of practice. We have mediated disputes in a wide range of areas including commercial disputes, construction, property damage, insurance and reinsurance, professional negligence, personal injury and clinical negligence.
Our team offers practical, efficient and user-friendly mediators. 2TG mediators specialise and lead the way in active mediations, leaving behind the traditional passive mediation format. The active process is fast moving and dynamic and the parties and mediator work together to quickly identify and achieve options for settlement. As part of this process our mediators’ backgrounds means that they are suitably skilled to reality test the parties’ case thereby helping the parties to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their case.
Our mediators are adaptable and innovative and if required are able to deploy a blend of facilitation and evaluation to suit individual mediations. Our team also specialises in early start mediations which are becoming increasingly popular.
2TG has a long history of being involved in both domestic and international arbitrations in multiple jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Dubai, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Philippines, Singapore, and the United States.
Members of Chambers have acted in arbitrations administered by many of the major international arbitral institutions and subject to the major arbitral rules of practice, including HKIAC, ICC, ICSID, LCIA, SIAC and UNCITRAL, The scope of Chambers’ arbitration practice reflects Chambers’ commercial practice groups and has included arbitral disputes involving Banking and Finance, Commercial Disputes, Construction, Insurance and Reinsurance, Professional Negligence and Property Damage.
Our Arbitrators draw on the considerable depth and breadth of their practices. This substantial practical experience results in arbitrators that are efficient, practical and responsive to clients’ needs and requirements in the arbitral process.
During the twenty years since statutory adjudication was first introduced as a specialist form of dispute resolution covering construction and engineering disputes, our team has developed a breadth of experience in the adjudication process.
Several members of Chambers act as adjudicators through the TECBAR panel. Our adjudicators are able to accept instructions at very short notice and within the strict timetable as prescribed. Additionally, our adjudicators are able to provide advice and assistance in relation to the 28-day procedure of the adjudication process.
Our adjudicators have substantial experience as adjudicators as well as counsel, dealing with all aspects of construction and engineering disputes and property damage disputes.
