We work closely with clients to assist them in problem solving and developing risk management strategies to defuse disputes where possible. However, where disputes are unavoidable, our team is known for its strategic litigation experience and our focus is on minimising the disruptions disputes can have on the running of a business.
The team is particularly recognised for its strong track record in project managing both large scale client assignments (particularly across practices) and individually complex cases.

The team is very solution and results-driven, and leads the discussion in many cases, to move quickly towards getting a solution.

Strategic and practical.
They are very client-focused and good at meeting timelines. They make a point of finding the best solution for the client, are not too expensive and are usually ready to negotiate a fee structure at the commencement of a project.
The availability of the partners, their expertise and experience, and especially the pragmatic nature of their advice, are as good as any I have encountered.
