Dispute Resolution

Disputes are a fact of modern life. Understanding and dealing with a dispute in a professional and commercial way has never been more important. Being involved in a dispute can be a stressful, time consuming and expensive experience, and we work with our clients to take on the strain.

Often our clients are keen to preserve a commercial or personal relationship in a dispute. In these circumstances we are able to work with our clients to avoid the courtroom and instead explore other practical and cost-effective avenues to resolve disputes, including mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

We partner with our clients to help manage risk and solve serious business problems, avoiding proceedings unless necessary. When litigation is unavoidable, we weigh business objectives against legal, commercial and reputational risk to determine the best path to success – whether through settlement or a fight. We analyse negotiating weaknesses and devise optimal procedural tactics or creative settlement approaches, executing as promptly and as cost effectively as possible.
