Disputes Avoidance

Dispute Avoidance
The best way to avoid a dispute is to circumvent it from happening in the first place. If this is not possible then the dispute needs to be managed in the best, quickest and most economical manner possible.
Each of the traditional ADR methods from mediation to litigation has a place in resolving disputes. However, they are all inherently reactive and only come into play when there is a well-developed dispute which the parties themselves cannot resolve without assistance.
Dispute Avoidance Advisors (DAA) and Dispute Avoidance Boards (DAB) can play an active role working with the parties to either eliminate or minimise the dispute and its impact on them. These roles are particularly useful when the parties are involved in complex, lengthy or high-value contracts / projects.


What our clients are saying about our mediation services
  • I retained Chris to assist in resolving a seemingly implacable “disharmony” between two valued employees that was significantly impacting my office in Sydney. He saw each employee alone and then had a third meeting with both of them. The change was extraordinary, not only was “peace” brought to the office but they became the best of friends and remain so. On this one episode alone I would unreservedly recommend Chris.

  • I needed a mediator so I googled “I need a mediator“. I was put onto Chris from Bridge Mediation .Chris was so helpful and fair and explained how everything worked. If you need a mediator I recommend Bridge Mediation.

  • Thank you for your facilitation services in what has been a very difficult situation. We can now see the positive progress we are making. Your calm, respectful, considerate and very professional manner was like a breath of fresh air at the meeting and most welcome.
