Dispute Resolution Overview

It is difficult to make the judgement to take a commercial dispute further, but effective dispute resolution can help to reduce costs, stress and save time.

What is Dispute Resolution?

Dispute Resolution is the process of resolving disputes between parties and can take a number of different forms from negotiation, referral to a third party resolver such and an arbitrator, independent expert or mediator or through the courts. 

When to seek advice?

The question of whether to have recourse to the law is one of the more difficult judgements our clients have to make. When it involves business or commercial property issues, sound advice is vital - we can provide that advice.
