Alternative Dispute Resolution
Wherever possible, we recommend using a method of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) before taking the matter to court. There are several alternative dispute resolution methods that can be used, including round table negotiations, mediation, conciliation, and arbitration.
If you can prevent a lengthy and complex trial proceeding, that is always preferable –and will save you time and money.
If ADR is not possible or is unsuccessful, you may have to bring an action through the court system to resolve the dispute. The litigation process is not quick or straightforward, but contrary to popular belief, most cases do not end up at trial.
