Frequently asked questions about dispute resolution

How much does going to court cost?

It’s challenging to put an average cost for a legal process. Various factors such as the nature of the case, its complexity, the fees of witnesses and experts and the compensation paid out to the lawyer all affect the price. Generally, going to court for a dispute costs at least 10 000 euros in Finland.

I got a writ of summons to go to court. What should I do?

Immediately contact a competent dispute lawyer. If you do not respond to the writ of summons, the process turns into a default judgment. This often means that all claims made by the applicant will be automatically accepted by the court.

What is arbitration?

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), often designated for medium-sized and larger business disputes. This way, the dispute can be settled on a quicker schedule through a private process, and the specialists in the relevant industries or subjects can be included as arbitrators in the process.

Should I settle my dispute?

It is always worth it to try to settle your dispute. In mediation, you can influence the end result whereas in a court process the sentence is “given”. Regardless of its type, mediation is practically always quicker, cheaper and more flexible than going to court.

Mediation offers much freedom in settling your dispute, because you can agree on matters such as apologies and promises to act a certain way. The biggest challenge in mediation is that it requires the continuous consent of both parties.
