Over the past six years, our team has assisted clients with a number of very large and complex disputes, as well as a number of small disputes.

Our team prepares a litigation and resolution plan at an early stagy of any dispute. We regularly update clients on progress and involve them in the resolution strategy to ensure the solution is right for them.

The use of technology enables us to maintain a lean commercial litigation team while at the same time being able to efficiently and effectively manage litigation of all sizes.
