Advisory & Dispute Resolution
Whether we like it or not, this is not a perfect world and so, during the course of business, invariably a dispute can arise. It is how you deal with that dispute that can have an impact on your business. Frankly put, being involved in a dispute is bad for business (given the management time and financial cost associated with the dispute).
Experienced business people do quite often manage to resolve disputes through pragmatic commercial stances. However, this approach doesn’t work for every dispute and so, what happens when you are unable to reach that resolution? We want to help you. Sometimes the involvement of lawyers can help that resolution ‘get over the line’ and we will do all we can to assist you in reaching that resolution so that you can get back to doing what you are best at doing – running and developing your business!
To help you in this regard, as long as we are able to do so (which is down to the approach your opponent takes) we utilise a pragmatic and commercial approach to the resolution of your dispute. Your end goal is what we work towards. We apply tactics, the law, strategy and importantly, common sense to each matter. We don’t use fancy legal speak. We are concise and to the point. We are approachable but importantly, we get things done.
Irrespective of this, sometimes there is no alternative but to go to Court. To that end, our team of specialist litigators and advocates work closely with leading sets of Chambers to ensure that your case is evidenced and presented as effectively as it can be. Although being involved in any litigation is risky, we try and minimise the risk and overall cost as proactively as we can. The lawyer assigned to your matter is the lawyer you will deal with. Whilst it will always be your case, it becomes our case as well.
