DISPUTE RESOLUTION SERVICES
2. DISPUTE RESOLUTION SERVICES
If redress through the court system is not available or is limited or, particularly in the case of foreign investors, is undesirable, there may be other mechanisms available at law or by contract.
Mediation is a process wherein the parties meet with a mutually elected impartial and neutral person who assists them in the negotiation of their dispute. We provide for commercial and workplace mediation services to both public organizations and private companies and individuals involved in disputes. We then by using acquired skills encourage the parties to discuss and understand the issues so that they may work together to explore and consider various options and alternatives in order to find mutually acceptable solutions to their problems in a neutral environment. These solutions are determined by the parties themselves. Reaching a solution will usually involve some compromise on both sides in order to resolve the disputes.
Workplace mediation: As experts in mediation, conflict resolution, negotiation, and group facilitation, we can draw from a variety of approaches to tailor a solution to your workplace matter.We look to resolve not only the problem that brought the matter to management’s attention, but also to begin to rebuild relationships, along with everyone’s capacity to effectively handle any future issues that arise.
Conflict Systems Design: As specialists in conflict resolution and avoidance we can advise and assist with the setting up and design of ADR systems for internal and external conflict resolution; hence the mediator and or neutral can also assist with consultancy assignments to develop organisational capability and capacity for resolving conflict including dispute systems design, introducing mediation, developing formal policies and procedures, establishing informal communication protocols and coaching managers and teams through change.
Arbitration can provide an early and cost effective resolution of most matters, using a process that can be designed to meet the needs of the parties. Arbitration can be final and binding, either through the use of an arbitration clause in an existing agreement, or through an arbitration agreement, agreed to by the parties after a dispute arises. After an arbitration hearing is requested, Resolution Experts will determine what kind of substantive expertise the parties require in an arbitrator to assist them to resolve their dispute.
Early Neutral Evaluation
We provide opinions in respect the use of ADR. A Neutral case evaluation is a process in which a neutral examines all the evidence and gives his opinion of how the case will turn out. Cases can easily be trapped in protracted litigation when a party or their representative mis-evaluates the case.

OUTSOURCED GENERAL COUNSEL CONSULTING
5.OUTSOURCED GENERAL COUNSEL CONSULTING
Small and medium businesses that do not have the revenue and volume to justify their own in-house general counsel consulting team often do not get the timely legal advice they need because (a) they are concerned about the cost of being charged every time they pick up the phone to talk with their lawyer, and (b) when they do get their lawyer involved for corporate counseling, there is often substantial time and expense in bringing him or her up to speed on the current state of their business. As a result, legal work is usually done on a crisis basis, reacting to problems, when spending a similar amount of money on a preventive basis would avoid most of the crises. Those crises that do occur will be managed more efficiently, and the business will be on a sounder legal footing for major events such as a capital raise or an acquisition.
Resolution Experts offers the equivalent of outsourced general counsel consulting at a flat monthly fee. Our outsourced corporate counseling services include:
- Client access to a highly experienced business lawyer for quick responses to routine issues without worrying about hourly charges
- Regular general counsel consulting to keep abreast of current business activities and strategies, including regular meetings with management and attending meetings of the board of directors
- Corporate counseling that includes selecting and managing other specialized legal resources outside of our firm’s expertise, including framing the issues and managing the engagement to maximize results and minimize costs
We have a network of specialist resources available to provide expertise, if required, outside our core areas of corporate counseling. We manage these resources so that our clients receive seamless advice and service. This enables us to offer complete general counsel consulting provided by individuals whom we regard as the most appropriate under the circumstances, rather than simply the most convenient. The relationships we have developed and our understanding of how those firms operate enable us to negotiate competitive rates for our clients’ work. We have also established a network of relationships with top-tier angel investors, venture capital firms, incubators, accelerators, business consultants and other business service resources that can provide assistance to our clients on non-legal issues alongside or independently from our corporate counseling.
By taking advantage of outsourced general counsel consulting from Resolution Experts, a company can have the efficiency and strategic guidance of an in-house general counsel without paying a full-time salary or premium law firm fees.

Outsourced Disciplinary Hearings:

We are able to recommend the right person to suite the circumstances of your company and the troublesome employee, whether it be a pilfering tea lady, a corrupt executive or anything in between.
Very often company’s battle to find a suitable chairperson internally, with individuals reluctant to do their job either because of inter-office politics, a lack of understanding about the relevant procedures or law, or for fear that they will labelled as ‘biased’ by either the staff or management.
Our chairpersons will:
