What is a Civil Dispute?

Civil disputes are private cases in which a party is seeking compensation or solution for scenarios outside of criminal law.

Civil disputes are governed by The Civil Procedure Rules, which are the framework used for all civil claims, providing a basis to pass judgement in these types of cases.


What is a Business Dispute?

Disputes are common within business, whether it’s with customers, competition, suppliers or employees in the business.

Business disputes are defined as any kind of disagreement between two businesses over the terms of an agreement signed by both parties involved.


Dispute Resolution

Disputes are most commonly resolved by two ways:

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative dispute resolution, or external dispute resolution, typically denotes a wide range of dispute resolution processes and techniques that parties can use to settle disputes, with the help of a third party.

The use of ADR can prevent complicated court proceedings, saving not only money but also time.


Civil Litigation

If alternative dispute resolution doesn’t result in agreement court proceedings may be started. Not all cases however go to court, even if proceedings have started. If the courts are required it can be a long and complex process.
