Frequently asked questions

What Is Dispute Resolution?

Dispute resolution is the process of finding a resolution to a disagreement between parties, either outside or within the court system.

How can disputes be resolved privately?

Arbitration is a private process that can take place to avoid legal action. This is often sufficient to resolve issues if both parties are motivated to come to an agreement.

What is the least expensive method used to resolve a dispute?

An Alternative Dispute Resolution scheme can help to keep costs down. These are typically more flexible than going to court and can also be much less stressful for those involved. Provided both parties are motivated to find a compromise, this can be one of the cheapest ways to resolve a dispute.

Is Alternative Dispute Resolution legally binding?

This depends on the scheme you choose. Some ADR schemes will result in a legally binding outcome, so it’s important to consider if you will be happy to follow the outcome, even if it doesn’t fall in your favour.
