Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution is an art form; and ALTIUS’ specialised in-house team has mastered this art. Focusing on negotiation and mediation rather than court proceedings is always the preferred path to resolution, but the team remains ready to go to court or arbitration when necessary.
