Dispute Resolution

Dispute resolution is an alternative to costly court proceedings, but you need the right kind of support.

< Back to Services

When faced with a dispute, reaching a resolution without the potentially high costs of court proceedings is an increasingly preferred route. Davidson & Robertson has the qualified professionals to offer a Dispute Resolution service tailored to rural property issues. This is an alternative to court proceedings that can resolve a range of disputes: Rural and Agency services, Utilities, Energy and Infrastructure, and Property and Forestry.

Qualified Arbitrators

Several members of the team at D&R are Associates of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (ACIArb) and our Senior Director, Martin Hall, is also an RICS Accredited Mediator.

Many of our professional team are Fellows of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (FAAV) and either members of the Scottish Agricultural Arbiters and Valuers Association, or the Northumbria and Cumbria Branch Association. Members of these associations can be called upon in agricultural tenancy dispute matters.

“We have the ability to understand the technical rural issues and resolve matters whether through expert determination, arbitration or mediation.”
