Contract Dispute Resolution

Conflict is draining, for everyone. Anyone who has had to go to court to resolve a matter understands that no one wins in that situation. Even Judges have taken the time to criticise big business for failing to find alternatives to court.

Talking about the Seven Network case against News Limited around Seven having to shut down its C7 pay TV provider, Justice Sackville said, “It is difficult to understand how the costs incurred by the parties can be said to be proportionate to what is truly at stake, measured in financial terms. In my view, the expenditure of $200 million (and counting) on a single piece of litigation is not only extraordinarily wasteful, but borders on the scandalous.”
