aktivResolve assists individuals and organisations to settle disputes quickly and with minimal outlay.
Settling disputes through the courts is usually a slow and expensive process. Dispute Resolution provides a variety of methods that can result in binding resolutions.
We are able to offer the following services:
- Assist you in resolving disputes
- Advise you in the preparation of submissions in resolution proceedings
- Facilitate dispute avoidance workshops
Facilitation is a process that generally assists large groups of people to formulate their own decision. The resolution practitioner (facilitator) facilitates the discussions and guides them through the decision making process. Being properly heard is a key aspect of the proceedings.
Mediation is a process utilising a resolution practitioner (mediator) to assist both parties in a dispute to identify the issues, develop options and/or alternatives, and negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement.
Adjudication is a formal process for resolving disputes through written submissions. The resolution practitioner (adjudicator) makes a decision based on the submission. One example is found in the building industry, where the adjudication is legislated through the Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act 2017 (Qld).
Arbitration is the most formal process outside of the courtroom, and can rely on court like processes. The resolution practitioner (arbitrator) will make a binding decision for the parties. Arbitration is subject to Commonwealth and State legislation; arbitrators usually have some legal training.
