DECISIONS MADE BY INDEPENDENT LEGAL SPECIALISTS ARE FASTER THAN COURT DECISIONS

Our specialist Arbitrators and Counsel are required to follow strict timelines to ensure your dispute is resolved quickly. Decisions can be made in as little as 30 days. Litigation in Court can take 1-2yrs for a hearing and another 1-2yrs for a decision. Why wait 4 years to resolve a dispute?

DISPUTE RESOLUTION IS BINDING AND SOMETIMES MANDATORY

Binding determinations made in Arbitration are enforceable in Court and are binding on the parties. With Court ordered Arbitration a party must take part in the Arbitration. Some commercial contracts also require parties to Arbitrate matters before going to Court.

Most Courts must publish the names of the parties in each case, its judgments and some Courts publish the evidence filed.

"I mediated a matter where one business owner wanted to exit a business. The parties were $150,000 apart. Lawyers were involved and ready to commence proceedings to appoint a liquidator who would then sell the business to the highest bidder. The mediation took one day and cost $1,500 for each party. The Court filing fee was to cost $3,000 on its own! "
