Your Questions Answered

What is Litigation?

Litigation is the process of bringing a dispute/disagreement before a court of law. When parties fail to reach a fair outcome themselves, they bring their arguments before a court to seek its judgment. The term ’litigation’ is a broad term that describes a long and often complex process.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a facilitated negotiation process wherein a neutral party facilitates an agreement between the disputing parties to resolve often civil disputes. This approach encourages cooperation, prioritising open dialogue and empathy. In an instance where mediation should fail, litigation is the next step.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a method of alternative dispute resolution where parties agree to submit their legal disputes to an arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators, rather than going to court. The arbitrator, or arbitrators, act as neutral third parties and make a binding decision to resolve the dispute. This decision, known as an arbitral award, is typically based on evidence and arguments presented by the parties during a formal hearing.

Arbitration is more commonly used in various commercial contexts, such as business-to-business disputes, employment disputes, and international transactions as opposed to civil disputes. It provides parties with a confidential and private forum to resolve their disputes outside of the public court system.

What are Round Table Negotiations?

Round table negotiations refer to a collaborative approach to resolving conflicts or negotiating agreements where all parties involved sit together at a literal or metaphorical round table. This setup gives participants equal footing and opportunities to contribute to the discussion.

In round table negotiations, each party typically has the chance to express their perspectives, concerns, and interests openly. This format encourages transparency, active listening, and constructive dialogue aimed at finding common ground and reaching mutually acceptable outcomes.

Round table negotiations are often employed in various settings, including business negotiations, diplomatic talks, labor disputes, and community discussions. The goal is to promote inclusivity, cooperation, and consensus-building among the parties involved
