I am conscious of the cost reality in allowing disputes to continue. One of my roles is to work with the parties to help balance interests, needs and cost. I recognise that in life it can be difficult to achieve a perfect outcome – although by no means impossible. But if the perfect outcome is to come at a dollar or emotional cost which appears to destroy the worth of the result then I will work with the parties to find the pragmatic solution. That does not mean pursuing compromise for its own sake, but rather is about trying to ensure that the parties have the necessary information available to help them come to sustainable decisions.
