I like to get a strong grasp of the key legal and factual issues at an early stage so I can give clear, pragmatic advice on the risks and how to deal with the matter. Whether your matter is being litigated before the Courts or dealt with through alternative dispute resolution such as mediation, I will make sure you understand the likely steps, timeframes and costs to avoid surprises.
Finding yourself embroiled in a formal dispute is daunting. I encourage discussion and try to foster an open, collaborative relationship with clients to make sure you feel like you are an active part of the process.
