The social distancing requirements mandated by the Covid-19 pandemic have by necessity ushered in a whole new era of mediation and adjudication online. ODR is a branch of dispute resolution which uses technology to facilitate the resolution of disputes between parties. The experience so far is that the technology works and it works well. Some form of online dispute resolution is undoubtedly here to stay.
Mr Jewitt offers his services online, in-person or in a hybrid format depending on the needs of the parties.
