Dispute Resolution & Insolvency

The world of commerce is no stranger to differing points of view. It keeps the wheels turning. When difference becomes dispute, however, it needs to be resolved as quickly, amicably and cost-effectively as possible. So that’s what we’ll help you do, with minimal disruption to your business.

Wherever possible and advisable, we seek to resolve disputes without recourse to the Courts through mediation, arbitration or reference to experts. The course adopted in each case is a strategic call based on a number of factors, and knowing how to make the right call is one of our team’s most valuable attributes. Litigation will, however, at times prove unavoidable, and in these instances we’re capable of meeting any challenge, as our team’s long track record proves.

We also act in front and back-end insolvency and reconstruction matters, ensuring credit-risk exposure is minimized and the chances of recovery are maximised if a deal should go wrong.

Our dispute lawyers are experienced in managing the often conflicting demands of financiers, business owners, insolvency practitioners, creditors and employees in distressed-asset situations. We regularly advise on the appointment of company receivers, administrators and liquidators; securities enforcement; debt recovery litigation; enforcement of judgements and claims against company directors.
