DR@BR brings together two forms of non-court dispute resolution - arbitration and PFDR/ENE – in a staged and streamlined process.
The indicative timetable and the fee structure in the flowchart can of course be varied to suit the particular case.
With arbitration DR@BR provides:

  • A quick and cost-effective way of getting a final decision in both finance and private children cases
  • Choose the issues to be determined – from single issue to all the issues
  • Choose the seniority of the tribunal – from junior counsel to senior counsel and silks who sit as Deputy High Court Judges and Recorders
  • Guaranteed judicial continuity from start to finish
  • Ease of communication with tribunal via email or their clerk
  • Fixed and transparent pricing structure
  • Flexibility over what documents to complete, what disclosure to give, and which costs rules to apply
  • The option of an internal or external private FDR in finance cases and an ENE in private children cases
  • A prompt written award/determination setting out full reasons for the decision
  • Guaranteed confidentiality of the proceedings


“the clerks build strong working relationships with solicitors and guarantee that the brief is thoroughly prepared”
