However, when a commercial or personal dispute arises, a court battle may seem like the only likely option. But there are alternatives, and we can help. In fact, we looked at our work over the last decade and realized that in 85% of 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
We will fight your corner, and we can of course pursue your case in court. We have a team of 150 litigators fighting tooth and nail for our clients in the UK, Singapore, East and West Coast US, the BVI, Hong Kong and Italy. While we hope to reach an early settlement through mediation or arbitration, our skilled litigators are on hand to find a solution for you in the courts.
