Welcome to CEDR Solve
CEDR Solve are experts in the resolution of disputes and deadlocked negotiations of all shapes and sizes from small claims to disputes valued in the billions. Headquartered in London, with offices in Dublin and Hong Kong, we work with clients from all sectors in many countries around the world resolving disputes quickly and for a fraction of the cost of litigation.
As one of the global pioneers of mediation techniques, CEDR offer a variety of different services to assist organisations with the resolution of disputes through negotiated settlements. We offer unrivalled expertise and quality assurance through our case administration, client feedback and peer review to ensure the highest levels of quality and client satisfaction.
We operate a number of binding dispute resolution options when organisations need an independent decision provided by an impartial expert. These options are private, quicker and cheaper than court proceedings and can be tailored to the party’s needs.
CEDR Solve works in partnership with hundreds of trained experts around the world but our approach is different to others. We take time to get to know the professionals we work with and understand their skills and abilities better than other providers.
