The dispute settlement clause
Why should I use the dispute settlement clause?
The dispute settlement clause should be incorporated into all contracts or service level agreements and memorandum of understandings of a business. Where the clause is made part of the contract the parties are obliged to refer the matter to the African Commercial Dispute Settlement Centre (ACDSC) as soon as a dispute arises. This will ensure that your business can resolve its disputes in a quick and affordable manner, and thereby avoiding the court process which is expensive and time consuming.
