There’s an oft saying, “A man with no enemies is a man with no character”. If you stick to your guns and stay true to who you are, you may come across disputes and disagreements with others. To be frank, it’s not in the interests of businesses and individuals to be involved in protracted litigation, as it can draw important resources away from the day-to-day operation of trade and cause unnecessary stress to those involved.
But when disputes reach a boiling point and the inevitable arises, sometimes there’s no alternative but to lawyer up and take it to court.
At Lazarus Legal, our lawyers have got your back and recognise what it takes to rise above the fight.
But we’ve been in this line of work for a while and know it’s not always a zero-sum game. Sometimes to truly come out on top we’ll explore a win-win situation with the other side, because your reputation matters and why burn bridges? That’s why our advisors look into resolving a dispute through effective negotiation, mediation or arbitration before we bring out the big guns! And if all else fails, we’ll take them on no question.
At the first sign of a dispute don’t be cowed into submission by intimidation by the other side. Get in touch with us and we’ll devise a strategic commercial alternative to what may otherwise be an arbitrary reaction to a small issue. This could ultimately be the difference between months or years of battling away in court and what separates a smart lawyer from a cunning one.
“A man with no enemies is a man with no character”
– Paul Newman
