O'Sullivan Davies Lawyers

In some circumstances, people seeking to resolve the issues which arise from the breakdown of a relationship prefer to utilise alternatives to the more "traditional" methods of dispute resolution.

Mediation is a process in which a third party ("the mediator") helps the parties to a dispute come to an agreement. The Mediator does this by facilitating communication, assisting the parties to identify their needs and interests, and using creative problem solving techniques to enable the parties to reach their own agreement.,Mediation is a process in which a third party ("the mediator") helps the parties to a dispute come to an agreement. The Mediator does this by facilitating communication, assisting the parties to identify their needs and interests, and using creative problem solving techniques to enable the parties to reach their own agreement.

In other circumstances, parties to a dispute agree to jointly appoint a person ("the arbitrator") to consider each party's argument and then made a decision. The parties agree in advance to be bound by the arbitrators' decision. This is often more time efficient and less costly than having the mater decided by a court.

O'Sullivan Davies has experience in all forms of dispute resolution, and can advise as to the most appropriate approach in individual cases. Trevor O'Sullivan is a member of the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators, Australia and Andrew Davies is a qualified Family and Child Mediator.

Referral of matters to the Professional Dispute Resolution Centre (www.pdrc.com.au) and to government and church groups is recommended in appropriate cases.
