This handbook starts by showing how to avoid disputes arising in the first place by drafting clear and fair contracts with a layered dispute resolution clause for example, to reduce the room for misunderstanding.

Where a dispute does arise, this handbook provides shrewd guidance on how to deal with the problem. Extensive chapters detail the most common as well as the lesser-known procedures with additional chapters that provide practical help on where to find the law, how to instruct a lawyer if you need one, what to pay and what to ask. There is also a chapter on international dispute resolution. Throughout the book there are useful check-lists, addresses and model notices such as those used for commencing adjudications or arbitrations and a model mediation position paper.
