Dispute Avoidance/Resolution

It has been said that the best form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (‘ADR’) is to avoid the dispute in the first place.  That may not always be possible, but there are ways to minimize the risk of a dispute crystallising or the parties becoming entrenched in their positions.

This training session looks at ways of trying to avoid problems arising, and also how best to deal with problems in a way which may prevent those problems becoming disputes. 

Consideration is given to the following areas:

  • Information flow
  • Identifying the issues
  • Fact finding
  • Communication and negotiation

An example scenario is used to work through the above areas by reference to a common situation on site.  We then look at the options should a dispute arise which requires more formal dispute resolution, including:

  • Litigation
  • Arbitration
  • Adjudication
  • Disputes Review Board
  • Mediation/Conciliation
  • Expert Determination
  • Early Neutral Evaluation

All of our training courses and seminars can be given to a small group of 5 or so delegates up to 50 or more delegates depending on topic and the client’s requirements.
