Dispute resolution usually goes hand in hand with litigation – but why should it? Let’s face it, litigation is damn expensive. While we get that sometimes litigation is the only option, (especially when it comes down to arguing on principle rather than money) it shouldn’t always be that way. In fact, most of the time, the parties should do whatever it takes to resolve their dispute amicably so that they can avoid the protracted and costly litigation process.
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 team of lawyers look into resolving a dispute through effective negotiation, mediation, arbitration or conciliation 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.
