Getting to know LMB’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Officer Ronnie L. Buna and his success in conflict settlement
Conflict is said to be a fact of life. After all, people can’t be expected to agree on everything all the time. Usually, conflict would make its way when one’s act is subjected to different interpretations. One might understand and accept the actor’s intention, while the other might completely disregard it and replace it with their own. It’s like diving into the ocean without knowing whether the fall will be splashy and noisy or quiet and serene. It is comforting to know, however, that while conflict is inevitable, settlement is possible.
That general concept of conflict translates into specific ones. Take for instance land conflicts. Land conflicts have been present for a long time. The Courts, of course, seems to be the common and convenient venue of settlement.
