Legal disputes are a feature of business and can’t be avoided but you do have control over how you deal with them.
The nature of legal disputes is that they escalate, attitudes harden and positions become entrenched. Going to court should be a last option. The Mediation Act 2017 was commenced on the 1st January 2018 and now gives parties in a dispute another option which is to resolve their difficulties with the assistance of a mediator/conciliator in a confidential and without prejudice process. Mediation provides more flexible solutions than going to court and is far less expensive.
