Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution

When commercial disputes arise they need to be tacked swiftly to stop them getting out of hand and to keep the time and cost of dealing with them as low as possible.

A particular caution is necessary in disputes involving cross-border transactions where additional jurisdictional issues have the tendency to complicate matters further.

To be able to react quickly you need clarity on the root cause of the problem, an honest appraisal of who should shoulder the blame, an assessment of the risks your business faces, a realistic view on the best and worst case scenario when it comes to possible outcomes, a firm idea of what you want to achieve and a clear strategy on how to achieve it.

This is where the expertise and experience of the dispute resolution lawyers at IMD Solicitors comes in.

How we can help

By working together from the moment a dispute arises we can help you take hold of the problem you face and shape the way it is dealt with to give you the best chance of achieving the result that you want.
