Probably, best way is to avoid litigation. We encourage parties to settle disputes by Mediation. However, it is a state of utopia to believe that there will be no litigation. Many a times, you are left with no option or sometime even it could be a best strategy to get into thick of things and litigate, either by defending or by initiating prosecution.

Sometimes, litigation leads to mediation and in some cases, parties litigate after failed mediation or arbitration. And in some cases, some of the issues are better litigated while others are mediated and/or referred to arbitration.

We promote mediation. Through mediation parties decide their disputes and is not decided by third person as in case of court litigation or arbitration.

All pending litigation and new disputes can be resolved through mediation, except certain types of offences. And hence mediation is more acceptable, speedy and less costly. However, it requires active involvement of the parties / their authorised representatives.

Adv. Prakash K. Pandya acts as Mediating Advocate in commercial disputes. Where both parties to litigation agrees to resolve dispute through mediation, an independent mediator is agreed upon.

Mediation in workplace can also be explored.
