Resolving and mediating disputes
Dispute resolution is the process of resolving disputes between parties. Many people want a professional advocate when they become involved in a building dispute, particularly if the dispute involves perceived defects or incomplete work.
Dispute resolution processes fall into two major types:
- Adjudicate processes, such as litigation or arbitration, in which a judge, jury or arbitrator determines the outcome.
- Consensual processes, such as collaborative law, mediation, conciliation, or negotiation, in which the parties attempt to reach agreement.
Buildspect offers a full range of independent dispute mediation and reporting services to builders and the legal industry nationally to cater for both these processes.
Consultants work alongside the client’s team to prepare all the necessary reports and provide expert witness in the relevant legal jurisdiction.
