Dispute resolution

Disputes are an unfortunate reality in today's business world.

Wherever possible the Dispute Resolution service helps clients avoid litigation and the disruption and costs that this can involve.

The goal is always to bring disputes to a successful conclusion – as quickly, cost effectively and painlessly as possible. 

Options for resolving client's disputes are always discussed. This may include alternative dispute resolution processes including adjudication, arbitration, early neutral evaluation, expert determination and mediation.

Where litigation is necessary the Dispute Resolution service works with clients to achieve their objectives taking into account both legal and commercial risks. This may include pursuing court proceedings to trial where necessary.

Services provided cover a broad range of disputes including:

  • Construction
  • Contract and commercial
  • Debt recovery
  • Defamation
  • Directors duties
  • Information technology
  • Injunctions
  • Intellectual property
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Nuisance
  • Partnership
  • Probate
  • Product liability
  • Professional disciplinary proceedings
  • Professional negligence
  • Property
  • Shareholder
  • Trusts
