Our Civil dispute resolution options in Nigeria include:
1. Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) should be utilized prior to filing a lawsuit whenever possible. Round table negotiations, mediation, conciliation, and arbitration are some of the alternative dispute resolution processes that can be utilized. There are also other approaches.
If you can avoid a lengthy and complicated trial or the inconvenience of filling out the court documents required to file a civil complaint, you will save time and money.
2. Civil litigation
If alternative dispute resolution is not possible or is ineffective, we may have to file a civil lawsuit to resolve the matter. The legal process isn't easy or quick, but not all cases go to trial, despite what most people think.
