Just Law has been involved in a plethora of building dispute litigation cases, from both sides of the proverbial coin. Often, a mediation is the best way to settle a building dispute, and is usually the course of action that most people feel comfortable with before it ends up as a tribunal hearing or in the intimidating confines of a courtroom.
Mediation is a fairly straightforward process in which the respective parties and their lawyers meet with an independent, trained mediator, who offers an objective viewpoint, and thus works through the building dispute to find a suitable solution. Unfortunately, and in Just Law’s experience, many building contracts often result in a mediation process, where even the courts insist on the parties undergoing such a process before entering their chambers. It is an effective method, but again, it pays to have knowledgeable legal advice from firms such as Just Law in your corner during the mediation process, as part of working through the legal twists and turns that comprise building dispute litigation.
