Dispute Resolution

In a highly competitive and litigious world, the careful management of disputes has become an essential part of business life. Whether it is the greater trading opportunities brought about by globalisation and e-commerce, the increasing regulation of our business life, or the changing fortunes of businesses and individuals through the economic cycle, the scope for disputes to arise is growing. Equally, there are many avenues to a solution.

At Mundays we have an experienced team of Dispute Resolution lawyers who take a flexible and commercial approach to problem solving which takes account of your core business objectives and offers a pro-active approach to achieving them. We will give you clear and commercial advice, setting out the merits of your case, the options available to you, and the risks you may face.

Although the team has a depth of experience in complex commercial litigation, we recognise that, for most people, court proceedings are seen as a last resort. Therefore, part of the strategic advice we offer will be a consideration of all options for dispute resolution, including negotiation, arbitration and mediation. Our approach reflects the concern which all clients have to minimise costs by working as closely as possible to agreed budgets.
