Discretion in advisory
In cases where our clients hold prominent positions in the personal, public, and/or professional spheres, the approach to litigation must be tailored to address the substantial impact that prolonged disputes can have on their lives and reputations. In these cases, litigation strategy must pursue and advance a client’s legal and public relations or business interests. We advise clients on the legal ramifications of each course of conduct.
Our commitment in such situations is twofold: we craft decisive and strategic action plans to fortify our client’s position and expeditiously bring disputes to a close before reputational damage occurs. A comprehensive understanding of litigious and non-litigious aspects of the law allows us to provide sound counselling on reputation preservation.
Whenever feasible, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a cornerstone of our approach: we guide our clients towards achieving resolution without resorting to formal court proceedings. This approach not only saves valuable time and resources but also safeguards the confidentiality of the dispute. We explore a range of ADR methods, including informal negotiations, mediation, and arbitration, each selected based on their unique advantages and relevance to the case’s specific circumstances. Frequently, a multi-pronged strategy is required where complex litigious disputes are present.
Our team can easily transition to high-stakes litigation if an alternative dispute resolution method proves ineffective or insufficient. Our team includes accomplished litigators with extensive experience representing clients across all levels of the judiciary.
