How long does a dispute take to settle?

August 25, 2017, By Slater Heelis

The length of time that it takes to resolve a dispute is difficult to predict as it depends on a number of factors, including the complexity of the issues involved, whether the parties decide to litigate, and the willingness of each party to negotiate and/or settle. As such, it’s important to seek expert legal advice as early as possible when disputes arise. In fact, attaining legal advice earlier in a dispute can often save time and money in the long term by resolving issues well before they reach an impasse.
