– a new blog by Wierzbowski Eversheds

At the beginning of September 2016, Wierzbowski Eversheds launched a blog (, dedicated to alternative dispute resolution, in particular arbitration. This is the sixth blog run by the firm’s lawyers.

The authors of the blog will encourage the use of alternative dispute resolutions, focusing on the advantages of alternative dispute resolution over litigation. Our specialists will discuss basic institutions used in arbitration and unknown in the court proceedings. They will also show potential problems in the relationship between arbitration and the court. The authors also intend to comment on current issues concerning the legislative activity in the field of ADR. is run by Wierzbowski Eversheds litigation team, edited by Maciej Jóźwiak, an attorney at law whose professional activities for several years have focused on arbitration. Depending on the discussed subject, other specialisations lawyers will be invited to cooperate.

- The purpose of our blog is to bring the broadly defined ADR closer to the entrepreneurs and their legal advisors. Thanks to the ADR, the resolution of the dispute out of the common court may be faster, cheaper and more efficient. Long-lasting proceedings and the uncertainty of outcome in proceedings before common courts, which have become the rule in our reality, always has a negative impact on business development. Based on our extensive experience in arbitration and mediation, we want to present readers with all issues related to the choice of alternative dispute resolution, clearly indicating what they can gain by choosing just such a way. In dispelling myths about the ADR, we also count on a lively dialogue with our readers - says Maciej Jóźwiak.

- We will try to convince our readers that while planning business relationships, it is worth to look forward and establish "smart strategy”  in the event of a dispute, bearing in mind that dispute management starts long before its creation - already at the time of conclusion of the contract. The ADR gives the parties far more control over the dispute proceeding than a lawsuit, and thus a bigger impact on the final decision - adds Maciej Jóźwiak.
