Disputes - Overview

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. 

 

Appropriate Dispute Solutions 

 

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.

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.  

The Formality to Cost Equation

 

Generally, the more formal the process, the longer it takes, and the more it costs - both for the process, and for the professional support you need along the way, from lawyers and others.

 
 

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.
