Alternative Dispute resolution
A dispute can come in all shapes and sizes. It’s impossible to list them all but here are a few examples:
- A company suing a private person for not paying an invoice;
- Neighbours who fall out over a right of way;
- Two companies disputing the terms of a contract or other agreement.
A “dispute” therefore is two or more parties who cannot agree on something. This is where a dispute resolution solicitor comes in. Whilst it may be that the only option available is formal court proceedings, the litigation solicitors at Ironmonger Curtis will always advise clients of alternative methods of resolving disputes which may prove to be faster, more flexible, and more cost effective. Alternative dispute resolution takes many forms, but common methods include:
- Adjudication; or
- Other settlement negotiations (often between lawyers trying to hammer out a deal by letters, meetings or telephone).
