We acknowledge that legal disputes can be time-consuming, costly, and stressful for our clients. Therefore, we propose an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process that involves mediation, conciliation, and arbitration to resolve legal disputes before resorting to court-based litigation. Our team of experienced lawyers is dedicated to providing efficient, practical, and effective ADR services to our clients.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR):
ADR is a voluntary process that provides an alternative to the costly and time-consuming court-based litigation process. Its primary focus is to find creative solutions that benefit all parties involved, allowing parties to be actively involved in resolving their dispute. ADR methods include mediation, conciliation, and arbitration.
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party facilitates communication between two or more parties in a dispute. The mediator assists the parties to identify and clarify their issues, explore possible solutions, and negotiate a settlement that both parties can agree upon. Mediation is a confidential process, and the mediator does not impose a solution on the parties.
Conciliation is a process similar to mediation, where a neutral third party facilitates communication between the parties in a dispute. However, the conciliator takes a more active role in proposing solutions to the parties. The parties can either accept or reject the proposed solution.
Arbitration is a process where a neutral third party, the arbitrator, makes a decision on the dispute after hearing evidence and arguments from both parties. The decision is binding, and the parties agree to be bound by the decision.
Our ADR services cover a wide range of disputes, including:
• Consumer law disputes, including those handled by the Ombudsman for short-term insurance, long-term insurance, and the motor industry.
• Family law disputes, including divorce mediation for settlement, parenting plans, and domestic violence orders.
• Contract law disputes, including commercial and private contracts, including those for business premises.
• Property law disputes, including rental conflicts, water and light disputes, and collection of levies.
We handle disputes with passion, and our team of experienced lawyers is committed to providing efficient, practical, and effective ADR services to our clients. We propose an alternative dispute resolution process to save our clients time and money while helping them find a voluntary solution to their legal disputes.
