Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) enables all parties involved to take advantage of a speedy, cost effective and confidential service, which gives greater control to the parties than they would have in the traditional court processes.

Facilitated ADR is particularly helpful in multi-party claims, when settlement negotiations have encountered difficulties; in cases where one or more parties would benefit from the involvement of a neutral and independent third party.

The ADR team of Five Paper provides a professional and effective ADR service to both existing and new clients. Although we have a strong reputation in the fields of commercial and property, and related areas, the ADR team of Five Paper provides a service covering all areas of law, dealing with all kinds of legal disputes, including those with an international element.


Our members act in a variety of domestic and international disputes. They accept appointments as independent arbitrators, mediators and experts in international commercial, investment treaty and sports arbitrations. We have experience of arbitrations involving parties from a wide range of industry sectors covering all areas of our expertise.

Members of Five Paper have acted as counsel or arbitrator in arbitrations under a diverse number of rules, including CAS, UNCITRAL, ICC, LCIA, HKIAC, SCC, ICSID and Rule (K). They also specialise in court proceedings relating to arbitration, acting in cases dealing with interim relief and enforcement of awards.
