Dispute Resolution

Advocacy is the art of persuasion. Effective preparation and presentation of your Mediation or Litigation is critical to achieve your best outcome.

Leverage Solicitors believe that Dispute resolution represents a variety of methods through which potential litigants may resolve disputes. The most common forms are:

  • Negotiation
  • Mediation
  • Conciliation
  • Expert appraisal
  • Arbitration
  • Litigation (also known as adjudication)

The first three focus on effective communication and negotiation, rather than using more combative processes. They avoid Court and are often less time consuming and costly. Such processes can help alleviate interpersonal disputes and conflicts within organisations, neighbourhoods and businesses.

The dispute resolution processes offer parties varying degrees of control over in the outcome. At one end there is negotiation and mediation, in which the parties retain control and must voluntarily agree to the settlement. At the other end is arbitration and litigation in which the parties essentially give up control and request a third-person (the arbitrator or judge) to impose a decision to resolve the dispute. There also exist combinations of these methods.
