Dispute resolution is the process of resolving disputes between parties, including litigation, arbitration, collaborative law, mediation, conciliation, negotiation and facilitation. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) - the use of extrajudicial processes to resolve conflicts - has experienced steadily increasing acceptance and utilisation due to its perceived flexibility, costs below those of traditional litigation, and speedy resolution of disputes, among other advantages.
In this Round Table feature, Corporate INTL discusses the main institutions involved in dispute resolution, the key complexities, and other important issues with experts in the field from around the world.
Insolvency law governs companies and individuals in financial difficulty and unable to repay their debts as they become due. This could lead to insolvency, wherein legal action is taken against an insolvent entity, and assets may be liquidated to pay off debts.
Restructurings occur before a business or an individual becomes involved in insolvency proceedings. Another option is out-of-court arrangements with creditors to work out alternative repayment schedules. The work of legal professionals within this field can therefore be considered non-contentious, i.e. restructuring, or contentious, i.e. insolvency litigation, and their roles may vary, dependent on whether they act for debtors or their creditors.
