We continue to respond the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation and to ensure that we do all we can to keep our people, clients, friends and families safe.  We are open for business and operations are running smoothly, however we are continuing to do all we can to limit physical contact and to contain the traffic in to our working premises in Lincoln’s Inn to a safe working minimum.  We continue to be open for business, in as normal a way as we can make it.  Most barristers, practice managers and the rest of our staff team are still working remotely and making the best use of technology to deal effectively with work and meet our clients’ needs.

You can call us on +44 (0)20 7242 2523. Our normal telephone system is still operating and our usual friendly team is available to help.

We have a specific Covid-19 Resources section to assist with the specific issues which the coronavirus pandemic is causing across all sections of society and business.  For ease, see a summary page of all contacts during this unusual time.

Hardwicke’s experience in all forms of ADR can be viewed here.  This includes arbitration, early neutral evaluation, expert determination and mediation.

Although physical meetings are not possible at the moment, we are able to host mediations and arbitrations online with our members operating as either mediator, arbitrator or counsel as appropriate.   We are also able to host other forms of ADR online such as arbitrations.   If you would like more details, please contact either Richard Sumarno  or James Duncan-Hartill.

We also publish regular articles which you may find useful.  The most recent is one by John de Waal QC which can be viewed here.  There is also a comparison of arbitration with expert determination by Catherine Piercy and Andy Creer here.
