Avoiding costly litigation

Our prowess in pursuing and defending court claims proactively and confidently ensures that our settlement proposals are taken seriously. We are also extremely conscious of the costs involved with litigation and in addition, the stress that it can cause for clients.  We are keen advocates of alternative dispute resolution and mediation as effective means to achieving prompt, cost effective and amicable settlements. We find that mediation often helps restore strained relationships.  However, as with all negotiation, this is best undertaken from a position of strength.
