The Family Team at 36 are at the forefront of family law non-court dispute resolution. 36 Family has nine experienced IFLA arbitrators (five qualified to arbitrate in money and property disputes and four qualified to arbitrate in private children law disputes). Many of our mid to senior ranking members accept appointments as neutrals/evaluators for private FDR tribunals in financial remedy and family property disputes. 36 Family also has several members who regularly conduct mediations in money and children matters.
36 Family is firmly committed to assisting parties to resolve their cases without the need to attend court, when it is appropriate to do so. We boast a wealth of experience in this regard, with two of our members being listed as industry leaders in the recently launched Chambers and Partners Family ADR directory.
Chambers has a dedicated Dispute Resolution suite, with hearing and private conference/breakout rooms. Dispute Resolution appointments are usually offered in chambers, but remote sessions can easily be accommodated if it suits the parties due to their distant/international geographical location. “Special measures” can also be accommodated to ensure that parties do not come into direct contact with one another. Members of chambers are also willing to attend dispute resolution appointments at mutually agreed locations throughout England and Wales (and beyond, when so required).
