LITIGATION AND ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Litigation is the pursuit of practical ends, not a game of chess.

Felix FrankfurterUS Supreme Court Judge and advisor to Franklin D Roosevelt

We are pleased with our record of success in the most sensitive and complex litigation. The defence of our clients’ rights and the protection of their interests are of the utmost importance to us and as lawyers privileged enough to practice our trade within, arguably, the most progressive legal system in the world, we will prosecute our litigation cases through to the highest Courts in the land if that is what justice demands.

We are however alive to the reality of the delays and cost implications that often associate the formal litigation process and therefore routinely use Alternative Dispute Resolution systems of settlement like Arbitration and Mediation.
