DISPUTE MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Ready to file a legal claim in a court? DON’T!

We can provide you with a fixed priced, results orientated, ‘value’ based Dispute Management Service.

We are lawyers and dispute management specialists who understand both the legal litigation framework as well as being experts in the modern dispute management processes like Mediation and Arbitration.

We design a dispute management process that is right for your dispute and implement it for you. Once appointed, we will contact the other party to arrange a joint conference (either remotely or in person) and work with all disputant’s to define the problem, discard unnecessary matters, engage with participants to understand and relieve their emotional angst and narrow the issues for discussion and agreement or determination.

Our charges avoid the normal ‘hourly fee’ because we work with your objectives. By negotiation, our fees to resolve your problems can be an agreed sum relative to your achievement outcomes.
