Dispute Resolution

Your Dispute

Every dispute is unique, so an institutional approach probably won’t make you happy.  Custom processes give better results, especially when sensitive/important issues need to be resolved, rather than “just” settled.

Select a process that suits your needs, or call us for free advice.  Most disputes can be resolved more quickly, with less pain and for less cost than you’d expect - provided you select the right process. 


Process Choices

Your needs, objectives, and required outcomes should have a major influence on process design and cost.  That’s why we offer a full range of customisable dispute solution processes - from informal Facilitation and Mediation, through to Judicial-style Arbitration.

Determine (SODR, Expert and Legal Determinations)

Phase #2 of the SODR process:  the Facilitator makes a binding Determination if the parties can’t negotiate their own solution.

OR:  Private appointment, by contract, of an independent and objective individual to make legally binding determinations on any issue. 


Expert Determiners deal with technical commercial disputes, such as business valuations; Legal Determiners deal with legal issues, such as legal precedents and legislative interpretations. Read more

Arbitrate (Expert and Judicial Arbitrations)

Private appointment of an expert, lawyer or retired judge, to make a legally binding determination on any dispute referred by the parties.  Arbitration is like having your own private judge.  You can even use court facilities for enforcement!     Read more.  


Formality to Cost Equation


All processes are tailored to the parties and their problems, meaning no more or less formality, time, effort, pain and cost than is realistically required.
