Litigation and alternative dispute resolution
In the business world disputes will arise from time to time. The key to avoiding financial loss and reputational risk is to resolve them as speedily and cost-effectively as possible.
Our litigation team will evaluate the situation with your commercial objectives in mind and assist you in positively managing the risk, using the most appropriate method of dispute resolution.
Sometimes litigation is unavoidable, but it often makes commercial sense to make use of alternative dispute resolution methods, such as arbitration or mediation, before matters escalate to the point where they have to be settled in court. Our legal team is regularly involved with various arbitration tribunals across South Africa. We can also act as independent arbitrators or as your representatives in an arbitration, locally and internationally.
