“If litigation is unavoidable, then the emphasis must be on the commercial rather than on the litigation.”

With litigation, there is always a winner and a loser and the costs can be considerable. For this reason, we always recommend that attempts be made to negotiate a settlement and if that does not work to see if the matter can go to mediation.

  • At the outset we discuss the risks and costs that may be involved
  • Ensure you are aware of the potential for mediation
  • Our focus is to limit your exposure, and the costs to both you and your business
  • Reviewing contracts and procedures to prevent litigation in the future
  • Successful litigation is based on trust and our focus is to communicate and build that trust with all of our clients

If we do not believe that there is a viable case, we will tell you so at the earliest opportunity so as to limit your exposure both to costs and to any legitimate claim that is made against your business.
