“…He who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client…”           Charles Dickens

GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Nobody likes disputes but as we all know, disputes are an unfortunate reality of life. Disputes whether they arise in ones private/domestic life or in ones business life have a number of unfortunate characteristics in common i.e. they tend to be expensive in their use of emotional and other valuable resources. Disputes if not managed decisively and skilfully from inception can quickly grow into monsters that consume our valuable emotional and financial resources.
