Differences of positions are inherent to human relations.   It is natural for differences to cause degrees of friction, and this might range from disputes between friends, family members, the public and government or even disagreements between governments, e.g., who should pay to build that border wall!


For instance in the CARICOM family of countries, the Caribbean Court of Justice is there also to adjudicate disputes which might arise between its members.  Having a dispute resolution regime in place is essential to civilisation and the rule of law, otherwise the biggest or strongest party would always overpower others to have their own way.


HDC Consultancy provides a means for parties to arrange a special managed opportunity to resolve disputes in a sphere of confidentiality without the substantial cost and time of committing to a full public trial.
