Dispute resolution & avoidance
Helping you avoid litigation, resolve disputes and, where necessary, defend or pursue claims in court
Achieve your objectives in the most suitable, timely and cost-effective way. Our creative, solutions-based approach helps you to set realistic commercial goals from the outset.
As our approach has adapted and evolved to meet the needs of our clients, it has been distilled into three elements:
Dispute avoidance | Turning our experience on its head to re-engineer processes and mitigate risk, thereby eliminating waste and maximising profit.
Dispute resolution | Applying our energy to identifying the best solution and adopting a creative, holistic approach to achieve it.
Legal project management | If a fight is inevitable, our priority is to set a strategy to achieve a successful outcome, and take the pain out of the process.
When disputes do arise, we’ll devise and implement a strategy to resolve them – whether through negotiation, through alternative dispute resolution methods (such as arbitration, adjudication, mediation or expert determination), or traditional court proceedings.
We act for major corporate clients across many industries and frequently represent clients in the High Court and in other jurisdictions.
