Mediation is the art of finding an amicable solution for two opposing parties in such a way that the solution can be implemented practically.
Mediation and arbitration can be utilized in a variety of ways in order to achieve settlement in a more structured form than would be the case by means of ordinary negotiation.
The professional mediators at Symington De Kok are committed to resolving problems in a cost-effective manner.

Negotiating and securing lease agreements of any fixed property, either residential or commercial, is essential and of utter importance in order to ensure a constant cash flow to service this particular asset.

Litigation is the use of a legal method accompanied by judicial oversight with which disputes between two opposing parties are resolved.
Dispute Resolution on the other hand seeks the same outcome and effect as litigation but provides an alternative method where judicial oversight is absent, in order to conclude an action and resolve disputes in a cost effective and time efficient manner.
Symington De Kok offers a wide range of methods to assist our clients with whatever disputes they might face.
We pride ourselves in our legal expertise relating to both litigation and dispute resolution and we are committed to finding a solution that fits.
