We always make sure our advice is pragmatic and we will be honest with you about your position and your prospects so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
Resolving a dispute without going to court
We usually recommend dealing with a dispute without litigation where possible. Court cases can be time-consuming to prepare for, they divert your team’s attention away from their job and they can be both stressful and expensive.
Alternative dispute resolution is generally a much quicker alternative and more cost-effective. If you take a case to court, there is also a risk that the result that is imposed upon you will not be what you wanted. However, with other methods of dispute resolution the parties involved with agree together upon a solution that is acceptable to all of them.
This allows you to put the matter behind you and it can even repair a relationship to the extent where you are still able to do business with the other party should you wish to do so.
In the event that your dispute cannot be resolved, we have a strong litigation team who will ensure that you have robust representation and the strongest case possible.
