TIMES HAVE CHANGED AND SO SHOULD DISPUTE RESOLUTION METHODS.

We all know that it’s foolish to expect different results by always doing the same thing in the same way and, this also applies to the legal system and to your legal counsel.

Companies and citizens –in general– need fast and efficient solutions to their legal problems, and with the existing interpretation of the law and dispute resolution methods becoming more outdated every day, it is imperative to search for a more efficient way to do things.

A lawsuit that lasts 10 or more years is not a solution to anything and legal counseling based on the same old archaic methods only leads to frustration and dramatically increased costs.

ARBITRAT OFFERS YOU A MODERN, EFFECTIVE AND AFFORDABLE LEGAL SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS FACED IN TODAY’S FAST PACED BUSINESS WORLD.

ARBITRATION AND MEDIATION CULTURE:

Costa Rica lacks education programs in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution. It is said that our culture is oriented towards peace, because we do not have an army and because – it is said – the only army we have is our teachers. But the truth is that Costa Ricans in general do not know how to communicate assertively, and if they do not agree, they prefer to avoid the conflict and will not express their arguments. This makes them resort to other ways of expressing disagreement: through the use of what is known as “chota” (sarcastically making fun of others) or to passive violence, or sometimes open violence – when driving a car–.

However, when a conflict arises, Costa Rica, has no culture of Alternate Dispute Resolution. We have been taught, only, to go before a judge. But unfortunately our courts are saturated, therefore, they are exceedingly slow; proceedings are very formal; the citizens never see the judge; and trials can go on for ten or more years.

Attorneys at ARBITRAT have broad experience in Alternate Dispute Resolution, and we have been trained in Costa Rica and abroad, and such experience has persuaded us of the need to promote a culture of peaceful dispute resolution.

From the platform of Costa Rican Mediation and Arbitration Academy and from ARBITRAT’s professional practice we work to expand the arbitral culture to as many contexts as possible.
