    Litigation & Disputes FAQs

    What is Litigation ?
    Litigation is a process primarily used for the resolution of disputes by taking legal action through court proceedings.

    What is Arbitration and Mediation and how do they differ from Litigation ?
    Arbitration and mediation are both forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (known as ‘ADR’).

    Arbitration is a non-court method where an independent arbitrator is appointed by the parties to make a decision which is usually confidential and binding.

    Mediation is another non-court method which is flexible, voluntary and confidential. An independent mediator helps both parties to work towards a negotiated settlement if possible.

    What is the “without prejudice” rule and what does it mean ?
    Without prejudice communications form part of a genuine attempt to settle a dispute that is privileged. This means that the communication such as an offer of settlement cannot be put in as evidence before the Court except in certain special and limited circumstances. The purpose of the rule is to encourage litigants to resolve matters between themselves without risking being embarrassed by an admission.

    When is the best time to seek legal help in respect of a dispute ?

    The short answer is the earlier the better. This ensures that all dispute resolution options are explored. A delay in matters could inadvertently prejudice your position. The earlier the advice is sought, the sooner you can be advised of your legal rights and potential commercial impact of your dispute.

    What can I do if my ex partner wont agree to an uncontested divorce ?
    If your ex partner will not agree to an uncontested divorce your only option is to wait for 5 years of separation at which time you can start divorce proceedings without your ex agreeing.
