Court proceedings are not the only way to settle a dispute. In most cases, all parties want to resolve the dispute fairly and reach an amicable agreement in the quickest most cost efficient way and therefore may decide to pursue Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Alternative dispute resolution may take any of the following forms:
- Mediation – where an independent third party offers advice to the parties in a dispute in order to help discussions progress smoothly.
- Adjudication – where an independent adjudicator who is an expert in the dispute area considers the claim and makes a decision.
- Arbitration – where a tribunal is appointed to consider the dispute.
