Our team works closely with private and commercial clients to identify areas which may give rise to disputes in order to avoid them.
We can advise you on a diverse range of domestic and international disputes. Areas of specialisation include: contract, negligence, professional negligence, corporate and partnership disputes, property litigation, intellectual property, defamation, insolvency, banking, insurance, debt collection and Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”), in particular, mediation, and our partner, Jeremy Garson, as well as a litigator with 30 years of experience, is an accredited mediator with mediation experience in a variety of disputes. In mediation the mediator does not make a decision or in any way adjudicate the dispute. He simply facilitates a discussion between the participants to help them to settle the dispute between them.
We actively encourage ADR as a legitimate alternative to litigation as fairer settlements can be reached in a fraction of the time, and at a greatly reduced cost. With our understanding of ADR we ensure that you are able to maximise its benefits, whilst also complying with all the court’s requirements.
