Mediation & Arbitration
Despite our professional desire to argue in court, we’re focused on getting to a solution through mediation and arbitration. Going to Court is expensive, time consuming, and stressful. You need litigation counsel that is both tough and practical.
It’s our standard practice to include mediation and arbitration clauses within your legal documents to try and avoid this costly endeavour. This isn’t just for business owners. If you have another legal document where we can encourage this route, we promise to find a way to solve your problems outside of the Court system. It’s cheaper, faster, and confidential.
If all else fails, we can and will vociferously represent you in Court or Arbitration!
International Commercial Arbitration
Starting a new international venture is exciting. It’s our job as your legal team to ensure you’re prepared for your business obligations at home and abroad by helping you establish systems that limit international liability.
Our familiarity with offshore and foreign markets ensures that your contracts are clear and compliant, and that your corporate structures are set up to protect you.
Because each foreign jurisdiction has different rules and regulations, we advise our clients to push for internationally recognized and private-sector dispute resolution protocols that divert disputes to internationally recognized mediators and arbitrators. These protocols are faster, cheaper and just as effective. Unlike Court, they aren’t public and generally remain confidential, which is critical for your business’ reputation.
