Consulting contractual dispute settlement on methods of dispute resolution
A contractual relationship is normally associated with interests; disputes occurred are normally related to conflicts of interests between parties. At that time, parties shall look at methods of dispute resolution appropriate for disputes to resolve disputes and protect their lawful rights and interests. There are usually four methods of dispute resolution including negotiation, conciliation, arbitration, and court.
Parties should negotiate with each other to reach out to a suitable solution to disputes arising. This is a priority method of dispute resolution because of its nature of flexibility. However, parties should select a lawyer for consulting contractual dispute settlement in the negotiation process to reach out the most effective mutual agreement.
