Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question?

What is litigation & dispute resolution?

Litigation is the process through which parties resolve their legal issues. The term "dispute resolution" is a more general and inclusive term, and covers both litigation and alternative forms of resolving disputes aimed at avoiding the cost and stress of court proceedings (such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration and other ways to settle disputes between parties).

What are the 3 types of legal disputes?

There are three main types of legal disputes:

• Commercial Disputes;

• Adjudication; and

• Regulatory offences.

Commercial disputes: These include contractual disputes, debt recovery and the enforcement of security. A successful commercial dispute resolution practice must possess a good understanding of economic principles and be able to draft contracts that adequately protect your client's interests.

Adjudication disputes: These include criminal, family and administrative law matters.

Regulatory offences:  These are offences that are committed against administrative law.

Is litigation a binding dispute resolution?

While litigation is a binding dispute resolution in Australia, alternative methods of resolving disputes such as negotiation, mediation and arbitration are available to parties if they choose. Because of this, most litigated disputes end up settling outside court.

What are the four types of dispute resolution?

There are four types of dispute resolution:

1. Litigation;

2. Negotiation;

3. Mediation; and

4. Arbitration – also referred to as ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution).
