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.

  • Construction
  • Contract and commercial
  • Debt recovery
