We encourage the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as it’s a flexible, less complex and often a more efficient method to resolving IP disputes before taking more formal legal action. Our IP Mediation Referral Service provides IP rights owners and applicants with access to qualified, accredited and specialist mediation providers. If you have an IP dispute you can select a mediator from our register that suits your needs and engage with them directly on how they can help you.
