Dispute Resolution & Debt Recovery

What is Dispute Resolution and Debt Recovery Law?

Dispute Resolution is a term used across both commercial and private law and the definition itself is not difficult to arrive at! In its most basic form, dispute resolution is the resolution of a dispute between two or more parties.

Debt Recovery specifically relates to the recovery of a debt owed by one party to another.
