Our team of specialist Dispute Resolution lawyers strive to achieve results that exceed clients’ expectations through being accessible, efficient, responsive and technologically sophisticated. Most importantly, our aim is to deal with any dispute with our client’s best interest at heart. Our international multilingual lawyers regularly act in cross-border disputes and understand the specificity of different jurisdictions.
Majority of disputes are settled outside the court through by way an agreement or compromise between the parties involved. Depending on the particular circumstances of your case, we will work with you to explore all possible avenues to resolve your matter as quickly as possible, starting from pre-action correspondence and without prejudice negotiations to arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
Although the English legal system is geared heavily towards creating conditions where disputes are settled out of courts between the parties, occasionally litigation ensues. In such cases, the involvement of an experienced legal team can help save valuable time and avoid unnecessary costs.
Our solicitors at Edmans & Co pride ourselves at a thorough approach to each matter in order to evaluate the most cost and time efficient approach towards resolving any dispute. Variety of factors must be accounted for which include not only merits of the claim, but also subsequent enforceability, tracing of assets, jurisdiction and so on.
We always consider all possible funding options for any client at the earliest stages of client instructions. We often work with professional third-party funders and in an appropriate case would be able to make an appropriate recommendation and referral.
