06 Jan The Science and Art of Managing Conflicts and Resolving Disputes
There is no question that lawsuits are always expensive, and may not always be fair in their outcome. In the traditional litigation approach, parties and their counsel are typically geared more to battle than settlement/resolution and ofttimes the cost of the battle exceeds the original amount of the controversy or obviates the real concerns and interests of the participants.
Those cases also typically take far more time to conclude than necessary, whether due to the Court’s backlog, a party’s delay, or other delays inherent in the system. As a result, many matters which could have either been settled, or summarily resolved, become attorney-fee driven, or cause the accrual of additional damages, and go to trial for the wrong reasons.
