Prior to court proceedings being commenced, the first course of action is to seek a resolution to the dispute, saving you both time and money. There are a number of alternative dispute resolution methods which can be used including round table negotiation, conflict mediation, conciliation, and arbitration. All cases turn on their own facts and the objectives of the parties, however, one thing that is common to all court proceedings is that they are time consuming and highly stressful.
Every effort must be made to settle disputes without resorting to litigation but this is not always possible. If all attempts to settle the dispute fail, then the aggrieved party’s final option is to commence proceedings in a Court of competent jurisdiction for judicial resolution of the dispute.
Should this step be required, a good litigator will do all that is required to minimise the time cost, stress, and expense associated with your case.
