However, when a commercial or personal dispute arises, a court battle may seem like the only option. But there are alternatives, and we can help. In fact, we looked at our work over the last decade and realized that in most of our cases, we actually helped clients achieve a desirable result outside of the court system, and away from the glare of the media.
What does this mean?
There are actually many options available for businesses, charities, people and families that do not want the expense and publicity that can be associated with going to court. We are trained negotiators and work hard to reach settlements out of court. We have teams of people based globally that focus on arbitration, mediation and adjudication which are all completely separate processes from the courts. And of course, ideally you avoid a dispute altogether. Contracts should be water tight and we often recommend including arbitration and mediation clauses to leave your options as broad as possible should you have a disagreement down the line.
Achieving the right result for you
While we hope to reach an early settlement through mediation or arbitration, we will fight your corner, and if the right strategy involves pursuing your case in court, we have a team of 150 expert litigators globally who will fight tooth and nail to achieve the best result possible.
