Litigation and Dispute Resolution

What is Litigation and Dispute Resolution?

Litigation and dispute resolution are ways to resolve conflicts in the most favourable way possible, both in the commercial and corporate spheres. There are three main types of dispute resolution procedures, which are litigation, arbitration and mediation. Litigation and dispute resolution solicitors can also help clients reach settlements without using formal dispute resolution procedures.

Arbitration refers to the solution given to any case or dispute between parties that may be located in different countries. Globalisation has led to an increase in the number of cross-border trade and investment, resulting in complex relationships between stakeholders. When a relationship breaks down, you need to consider the best way to resolve a dispute – the most common and favoured method is arbitration. This enables either party to avoid court proceedings.
