GLOUCESTER firm Davies and Partners opens the area's first commercial dispute resolution centre this month.The centre will be staffed by an in-house team of two case administrators, four mediators and two arbitrators.And the practice believes the one-stop shop service it intends to provide for clients will be unique.Partner Nigel Tillot, charged with setting up the centre, says clients have expressed great interest in the service which is due to start up on 27 February with a seminar for clients."We believe lawyers have a responsibility to consider all alternatives in dealing with disputes and then to apply the most appropriate," he says."The new centre will provide a rapid, cost-effective alternative to the courts for resolution of disputes across the entire commercial spectrum."We are keen to offer the service to our clients as we believe litigation doesn't give the best service in all cases. We've got cases ready for trial which we can't get heard for months."The firm is setting up the centre in association with the ADR Group, which it joined last year.
