Dispute Resolution

Reaching an amicable resolution to a problem without resorting to the court process removes stress and can reduce costs significantly. Alternative resolution methods you may want to consider include Mediation and Arbitration.

Mediation can take place informally, with parties sitting around the table, or in a more formal setting where an independent mediator is brought in to help find a resolution.

Arbitration may be an option for some commercial contract disputes and is favoured by some corporate clients as a quicker alternative to litigation.
