Dispute resolution is the process, whereby the parties involved come to a meeting and attempt to resolving a disagreement or a conflict by hearing each other’s needs and addressing them.

At Les Keady Legal, based in south Sydney, we offer a range of dispute resolution methods that can be used to avoid litigation. We focus on understanding your matter, providing appropriate strategies and resolving your issues efficiently and in a timely manner.

Negotiation refers to the give-and-take discussion to reach an agreement or settle a dispute.

Arbitration refers to the process where the business dispute is presented to an arbitrator (disinterested third party) to assist in settling the disagreement. The decision may be binging on the parties.

Mediation is an informal process, where a dispute is presented to a third party.

The collaborative law uses an interest-based negotiation, which is a process to examine what the issues are and how to manage these. Collaborative law identifies the emotional component that may not be solved in a court.

Litigation refers to a process that may lead to a hearing in court to achieve a resolution.
