Alternative Dispute Resolution for business disputes
Court proceedings should always be a last resort. As well as being lengthy and complicated, going to court to resolve a dispute is expensive and has the potential to threaten a business’s entire operation and its reputation.
Our primary goal is to achieve a positive outcome in line with your business strategy which causes minimal disruption to your day-to-day activities. Therefore, in the vast majority of cases, we recommend cooperative negotiations and methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.
Business disputes can easily spiral out of control so mediation’s purpose is to help businesses discuss and negotiate settlement in a neutral, non-combative environment.
The process involves attending a meeting or series of meetings under the supervision of a qualified mediator. The mediator does not provide legal advice or make any judgment on the matter. They merely guide and facilitate negotiations and diffuse conflict where necessary.
Neither party is bound to complete the mediation process and can walk away at any time. However, as the environment tends to foster compromise and cooperation, mediation has an impressive success rate for resulting in positive agreements which reflect the interests of both parties.
Arbitration involves an independent third party (an arbitrator) hearing both sides of your business dispute and making a decision. You and the opposing party will both have an opportunity to present evidence and state your case. Depending on how the process is conducted, the arbitrator’s decision may or may not be binding on you.
The process resembles court proceedings; however, arbitration is cheaper, less formal, and less public, meaning it’s likely to have a far smaller impact on your business.
