If you are involved in a court dispute, then it is not only a very stressful, challenging experience but also, can be risky and potentially quite expensive.
You might believe that going to court is the only way of resolving a dispute but there is an alternative, known as Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR.
The purpose of ADR, or mediation, is to enable you to engage with your opponent in good faith to try to reach a compromise and an agreement in relation to your dispute in an informal and confidential environment.
Mediation or ADR is often a very practical and creative way of being able to resolve a dispute which could leave you with a settlement or an agreement that is legally binding and enforceable.
It is important however to have the right attitude with mediation. It is not about winning or losing but more of a win/win situation; resolving the dispute in a manner that might even enable you to continue to do business with your opponent in the future.
