Alternative dispute resolution

Service People

A team of highly trained dispute resolution professionals to resolve your dispute privately and outside of the court process

While disputes in business and private affairs are often inevitable, the process for resolving those disputes does not inevitably need to result in lengthy and often delayed court-based proceedings. 

Our team of experienced alternative dispute resolution (ADR) professionals are trained in a range of techniques to expedite the process of resolving a dispute while protecting their clients’ interests. HopgoodGanim’s ADR professionals include mediators, arbitrators, family dispute resolution practitioners and trained collaborative law professionals.


  • Mediation – a confidential process offering parties and their lawyers a safe and secure negotiation environment whereby a neutral third party (the mediator) facilitates a satisfactory resolution.
  • Arbitration – a private, tribunal-based approach whereby a trained Arbitrator determines the resolution of a dispute. 
  • Collaborative law – a unique form of dispute resolution typically used in family law matters whereby parties and their lawyers are encouraged to co-operate and work respectfully with each other as a team to agree an outcome.

Industry participation

Our dispute resolution practitioners are proud and active members of the Australian Association of Collaborative Professionals, the Australian Institute of Family Law Arbitrators and Mediators, the International Association of Collaborative Professionals and the Queensland Association of Collaborative Practitioners.
