  • Preventing and Resolving Software Implementation Disputes - 14 May 2019
    Mario Rashid-Ring
    Conflicts often arise between businesses and the providers of their software solutions.

    Laura Bazouni
    The uncertainty of litigation can be frustrating - as it is impossible to guarantee just what will happen, how long the case will take or how much it will cost.  Mediation, on the other hand, is an alternative dispute resolution process with the potential to resolve disputes quickly, affordably and with limited stress for the parties involved.
