This area concerns settling disputes without resorting to litigation which appears to be recognised by the Courts as a reasonable way to resolve parties differences without the costs exposure that is involved in pursuing court action. Mediation is seen as an important part of the litigation cycle and is becoming increasingly important as a method of bringing opposing parties together and more often than not with a successful outcome.
Our firm encourages parties to avoid expensive litigation and whenever appropriate to mediate or arbitrate-if in the latter the contract provides for the same. The benefits of mediation cannot be overstated.
The vision shared by our people at the firm is to focus on the client’s needs, which often gets obscured by the desire of larger corporate firms to achieve market share.
In order to best cope with the changing demands of clients and technological advancements it will be those firms that can offer value for services combined with specialist consultant advice that can and will be able to thrive.
