Beat the Cowboy Builder offer Alternative Dispute Resolution services to customers requiring expert negotiation when experiencing construction problems

Our Alternative Dispute Resolution services consist of:

  • Arbitration - A technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts, where the parties to a dispute refer it to one or more persons, by whose decision they agree to be legally bound. It is a resolution technique in which a neutral third party reviews the evidence in the case and imposes a decision that is legally binding for both sides and enforceable by law.
  • Ajudication - The legal process by which an arbiter or judge reviews evidence, both written and verbal arguments and legal reasoning from opposing parties. The process is for the arbiter or judge to come to a decision which determines rights and obligations between the parties involved.
  • Mediation - This is a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties with concrete effects. The mediator, assists the parties to reach an agreement and negotiate a settlement. Mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that traditional negotiation does not. The process is private and confidential and may be enforced by law. Participation in mediation is completely voluntary. The mediator is as a neutral third party and facilitates the process rather than directs the process.
