Resolution of online litigation
The alternative resolution of litigation encapsulates the scope for all consumers to obtain the resolution or a ruling on some conflict prior to launching legal court processes. Commonly, this procedure involves the client requesting an impartial third party to intervene as an intermediary between themselves and the retailer that is the object of the complaint. The intermediary may propose a solution, impose a solution on both parties or bring the parties together to negotiate a solution. The alternative resolution of litigation concept may also be referenced by other names: ‘mediation’, ‘conciliation’, ‘arbitration’ or ‘consumer litigation commission’. The alternative resolution of litigation option is generally less costly, less formal and far swifter than the judicial option.
In case of consumer litigation, consumers may make recourse to the following specialist alternative resolution of litigation entities:
CNIACC – National Centre for Consumer Conflict Information and Arbitration
CACCL – Lisbon Centre of Consumer Conflict Arbitration
