Disputes are an unfortunate part of commercial life. Commercial Energy Arbitration is a division of CDRL. CDRL has substantial experience in working with clients in the energy sector to devise strategies to avoid disputes and to resolve effectively those that occur.

Our energy practitioners deal with niche areas from major cross-border disputes that threaten the existence of a company, judicial review work, or simply to advising on the choice of dispute resolution clause to use in a contract, as well as providing arbitration services to resolve long-running, intractable cases.

We take care to understand the party’s objectives and nature of dispute before devising and implementing an effective strategy or solution. When the interests of a party are best served by pursuing litigation vigorously, we consistently achieve good results, but we also have a strong record of success in the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques.

In the field of energy, we have an excellent reputation for our work in advising on the full range of dispute resolution methods to resolve business conflict. Our clients range from multi-national corporations, regulatory bodies and trade associations to banks and other financial institutions, educational establishments and companies involved in group actions to local retailers. We are increasingly working with international law firms, accountancy firms and corporates to provide clients with global solutions across multiple jurisdictions.

Our practitioners provide ADR advice to businesses of every size and handle complex cases on a regular basis. Our highly experienced team are professionals in their field and are genuinely committed to excellence in every aspect of their work, providing clients with a timely, cost effective and highly personalised solution.

We appreciate that sometimes, the “legal” approach is not the only answer and that there are often pragmatic commercial steps that can be taken to solve a dispute. This can include an “off the record” chat with an opponent to try and resolve a dispute by negotiation, or the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) such as Arbitration. In addition, our practitioners have dealt with other cases of national media interest and have often been called upon to provide commentary and expert opinion by the media, locally, nationally and internationally.

We take a forward-thinking and transparent approach to costs, letting you know in advance what you should expect to pay, and advising you on any other alternative forms of funding that might be available to you.

We are easily accessible with Consulting Offices based throughout the UK and EU. We provide a genuine alternative to law firms and other ADR providers boasting a client-reach that extends far beyond the borders of the United Kingdom.

We are more than happy to have a no-obligation discussion about any matter that you might have, and we can be contacted on 020 3540 8063
