Negotiations are nothing without careful planning

Disputes come on an array of shapes and sizes, meaning that one solution is not enough to solve the entire problem. Our company knows this all too well, which is why we prefer to offer a tailor made experience that falls more in line with your unique circumstances. Specialising in construction adjudication, as well as a number of other areas, we are the ones to call if things ever get a bit out of hand.

In a dispute, negotiation is the stage where bargaining occurs between every party involved. During this phase, discussions take place that relate to the complications present in the altercation. The goal of these talks is to establish appeasing give-and-take agreements which are acceptable to all the parties.

Just as much as it is about being persuaded of the robustness of one’s own case, or about being completely familiar with every technical and commercial element of the negotiations, the process is also about tactics. Each side will be aiming to achieve the utmost for them so the right approach is needed.

Exhaustive and efficient planning is what truly leads to fruitful negotiations. Prior to the start of the formal process a party should consider points like goals, relationships, alternatives, consequences, compromises, and predictable outcomes. If negotiations are tackled after these aspects have been explored, every party can be more acquainted with its objectives, methods and whether future negotiations would be manageable.

At Amison Dispute Resolutions, something that separates us from other companies is that we place an emphasis on constructing long-lasting relationships with our clients. As the years have progressed, we’ve had opportunities to work with people from across the whole business hierarchy, giving us the experience necessary to know what approach works best in a certain situation.

If we can assist you in any way, please get in touch with us. As part of our service we will advise you whether negotiation, construction adjudication, or another method would be best for resolving the problem.
