Arbitration & Litigation




There are a range of alternatives designed to enable aggrieved parties to seek suitable redress in a dispute situation, but if litigation cannot be avoided then it should be pursued as rigorously as possible.

Whether we're working with companies or individuals on the prosecution or defence of contentious actions, we focus on resolving them in the most straight-forward and cost-effective fashion possible - preferably without having recourse to litigation.
