Dispute resolution is a “catch all” term for the various approaches the parties may use to solve all legal disputes, among them, litigation, arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. Litigation, on the other hand, is a sub-set of dispute resolution focusing on representation before courts, tribunals and other disputes resolution fora.
Our main priority is to resolve disputes as quickly and as effectively as possible by using the best dispute resolution technique available.
