Litigation & Alternative Resolutions refers to the rules and practices involved in resolving disputes in the court system. The term is often associated with tort cases, but litigation can come about in all kinds of cases, from contested divorces, to eviction proceedings. Likewise, most people think of litigation as synonymous with trial work, but the litigation process begins long before the first witness is called to testify. In fact, the vast majority of litigated cases never reach the inside of a courtroom.
Alternative Dispute Resolution refers to the various ways in which people can settle disputes without going to court. Mediation, arbitration, and neutral evaluation are examples of common ADR processes. These procedures are typically more private, less formal, and less stressful than traditional court proceedings. Understanding these need, Kartika & Rouly Law Firm aims to provide comprehensive legal services in this area of law.
For those looking to determine if a legal matter falls within the category of litigation or can be handled by Alternative Dispute Resolution, consider whether a lawsuit would solve the matter. If so, the case qualifies as litigation, and an attorney practicing in this area should be retained
On the other hand Kartika & Rouly Law Firm always prioritizes Alternative Dispute Resolution because we believe it is more beneficial to clients in terms of time and cost savings. Outside of the courtroom, disputes are resolved through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration.
