Our firm has substantial experience in the area of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) including mediation and arbitration. ADR provides an attractive means of resolving complex disputes confidentially, away from court, which often leads the parties to a cost effective solution which provides a “win-win” for both parties. ADR is particularly advantageous when the parties are faced with a cross-border dispute involving foreign laws and courts located in international jurisdictions.
By choosing to mediate a dispute the parties are actually negotiating an amicable settlement which will provide commercial certainty and help the parties to avoid time consuming and costly complex litigation. In addition, our firm strives to preserve the commercial relationship between the parties in order to minimize the damages brought about by the dispute and maximize the potential future earninigs of both parties.
We have experience representing clients in arbitrations conducted under the rules of international arbitral bodies including the SIAC and ICC, assisting with the selection of the most appropriate arbitrators and advising on successful arbitration strategies.
