Fast-track dispute resolution

NRF Resolve, an NRF Transform product, is a new mechanism to resolve small commercial disputes fairly, quickly and simply. When negotiation has faltered and traditional dispute resolution methods are too slow, burdensome and costly, keep your business moving and control costs by resolving disputes within 2-6 weeks via an easy to use, secure online platform and a panel of expert mediators and arbitrators. Limited documentation and a streamlined process ensures a faster outcome. 

The process can be used for disputes between or within companies operating in both civil law and common law jurisdictions, and its fixed price allows users to effectively plan and control their budgets. The catalyst for this solution was the high volume of disputes arising from the COVID crisis, but it can be used for all types of disputes.

Parties may opt for a mediation process only, a mediation process followed by binding arbitration or an arbitration only. Impartiality is guaranteed through independent mediators and arbitrators which can be selected from a pre-agreed panel of independent sector specialists available through the platform, or you may appoint your own.

  • Protect valuable relationships by expediting resolution to maintain business continuity 
  • Achieve the best resolution in the shortest time 
  • Simple, clear process and a platform that guides you through every step
  • Fixed, competitive pricing
  • Industry leading mediators, and third party arbitrators, appropriate to the sophistication of the issues at hand
  • Resolve disputes from your ‘home office’ with no requirements to instruct external counsel, meet in person or travel, saving you both time and money


“This is for when counterparties are business partners, are willing to remain business partners and it’s a simple issue. We could save money, it will be quick and uncomplicated.” Client feedback
