Different kinds of legal cases have different time limitations imposed so it’s important that you seek legal advice quickly to find out if you can commence legal proceedings.
The first step is always to seek a resolution to the dispute, saving both time and money.
There are a number of alternative dispute resolution methods which can be used including roundtable negotiation, conflict mediation, conciliation, and arbitration. Dispute resolution lawyers can assist with this process.
