Litigation can have negative consequences for a business separate from the legal outcomes by drawing your attention away from the main game (your major business aims). We therefore recommend taking advice to circumvent situations that may result in litigation. At the core of avoiding litigation is ensuring all business contracts are comprehensive and well written, with attention paid to terms and language. Roberts Gray Lawyers can assist with contract preparation and review, as well as related litigation.
In the event of a commercial dispute, you should consider lawyers who know how to tackle problems and issues in an efficient manner. Time is money and you need lawyers who can achieve positive outcomes without running up the clock. It is also wise to use lawyers who have achieved results in circumstances similar to yours.
The team at Roberts Gray Lawyers seek to develop an understanding of the issues, ambitions and budgets of clients as a basis for planning litigation. Roberts Gray Lawyers then works with clients to determine the best approach for handling their matters and meeting their expectations. Always, the aim is to achieve positive outcomes within an economical framework.
When engaging in litigation, there is much at stake and the financial foundations of a business may be affected long term. The team at Roberts Gray Lawyers keep this over-riding fact in mind when planning to represent a client. This underpins actions taken for a client across a range of matters including trusts, contractual disputes and intellectual property issues.
Our litigation team can take the lead with settlement negotiation, mediation and taking matters to court. Our team will value the relationship with you and make a genuine commitment to working closely with you on issues that can mean the difference between your continuing financial well-being and failure of you or your company.
Try to be systematic and rigorous in choosing your law firm to handle litigation. We suggest the following:
- See if the law firm can up-front be honest about probable costs.
- The law firm can present you with an easily understood description of their approach to handling your matter.
- The law firm limits the number of cases each year in order to clearly focus on getting the best results for each client.
- The lawyer is clearly intent on looking after you. You feel you can trust them.
- In meetings and during phone conversations, the lawyer is clear and direct.
