Arbitration and mediation
These procedures allow parties to the dispute to put an end to their dispute, with the help of a neutral third party, without going before the Courts and Tribunals.
Mediation can therefore be exercised in many areas, including family law, social law, civil law, commercial law, etc.
As Mr DEWIT is a certified mediator for civil and commercial matters, he intends to promote this method of amicable dispute resolution.
This matter is of crucial importance for any activity that it is exercised by a company or a natural person.
