Alternative Dispute Resolution
We prepare dispute resolution clauses for our clients that make the resolution of disputes quicker and possibly more cost effective than having to have a dispute resolved in Court.
Many contracts contain dispute resolution clause that provide for expert determination.
When contracts contain dispute resolution clauses it is vital that they are strictly followed, as a failure to do so can amount to a breach of contract.
Often, ADR procedures are not available or not appropriate and court action is the only alternative.
Litigation is always an option. For more information on our litigation services and fee options see here.
Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our hourly rates and fixed prices for commercial work and for litigation are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms. Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms.
Whether you need to recover damages or defend a contract based claim, it is easier, cheaper and quicker for that to be resolved by following dispute resolution procedures set out in contracts than by having to conduct Court proceedings.
Our contracts require the parties to meet to resolve the dispute. If the matter can’t be settled an Arbitrator can be appointed to make a decision. Because hearings before Arbitrators are far quicker than Court there is a greater likelihood of settlement because of the early pressure placed on both sides to be reasonable.
We can provide dispute resolution clauses for inclusion in your contracts for a fixed price that can include reviewing all of your existing terms and conditions in your contracts of preparing a new contract for you.
