We are also great believers in the mediation process as a way of resolving intransigent disputes.
Although we strive to avoid Court and Tribunal hearings (which can be time-consuming and costly) in our experience there is little alternative in some disputes. If formal proceedings are required we can advise you in all aspects of the procedure including the aftermath of proceedings and, in relation to Court proceedings, provide helpful advice relating to the enforcement of judgments and orders.
