Dispute Resolution

An important factor in the resolution of any litigation or dispute is efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Litigation is in many cases an expensive and time-consuming process and can impose significant strains on individuals and businesses that become involved in it. We recognise that, for most of our clients, litigation and dispute resolution can become an unwelcome and expensive distraction from the ongoing running of their businesses. Our role in litigation is to take on as much of the burden of managing and progressing litigation to its conclusion from our clients as possible, while at the same time using the processes available to achieve our clients’ goals efficiently.

We measure the success of our service to our clients by the extent to which outcomes meet our clients’ goals. An important factor in this is whether the cost of the processes we use is proportionate to the benefit obtained by our clients. Recent successes on behalf of our clients demonstrate this – we have settled claims on behalf of our clients both before and after the start of legal proceedings, obtaining significant compensation for breaches of contract and tortious duties, and, importantly, securing recovery of our clients’ legal costs, limiting the cost of securing their legal rights. In cases where our clients have been subject of claims, we have reduced their exposure by careful case management.

In all of these cases, our philosophy is to balance the benefit obtained by our clients by pursuing a particular course of action or strategy against the cost of pursuing it. Our experience is that clients involved in litigation and dispute resolution increasingly wish to adopt cost-effective and proportionate strategies in managing their disputes.
