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.
We aim to work closely with our clients to resolve disputes as professionally and cost-effectively as possible. In addition, we will proactively help our clients to minimise exposure to future disputes or litigation. Our expert team of litigation and dispute resolution solicitors are equally as comfortable in dealing with mediation and arbitration as they are at dealing with disputes in the courtroom. As such, you can be sure you are working with a law firm that can deal with your every need.
Here is a deeper explanation of the litigation and dispute resolution services we provide:
Dispute resolution via mediation is where a neutral third party helps disputants reach a mutually acceptable conclusion to their dispute. The professional mediator arranges discussions that help both sides explore where their interests lie and seek a suitable resolution. Under this form of dispute resolution, the mediator will either work with both parties together or separately to help them vent their grievances. Any solution reached by this method is voluntary and non-binding.
Much like mediation, arbitration also involves a neutral third party. In these cases, they serve as a judge and are responsible for resolving the dispute. The arbitrator will listen to each side as they argue their case, then submit a binding decision based on the evidence provided. These rulings are usually confidential and cannot be approved.
Litigation is a common form of dispute resolution and will almost certainly involve going to court, where a defendant and plaintiff will go before a judge and potentially a jury. The judge will consider the evidence from both sides and then make a ruling, which is usually a matter of public record.
As we have stated above, our expert dispute resolution solicitors have amassed a great deal of experience in a wide range of areas. These include:
