"The firm is a real alternative to the Magic Circle." QC, Maitland Chambers
Taking matters to court is not the only route to resolving a dispute. But sometimes it is necessary and vital to fight for the right outcome. With many alternative dispute resolution options, we aim to guide clients to find the route that is best suited to the situation they find themselves in.
With a team of bright and highly experienced lawyers, Forsters' Dispute Resolution team consistently achieves commercial and practical results for its clients. Applying a tactical and discreet approach, we recognise how important it can be to protect the reputation of our clients. Working with corporate and individual clients, the team has the expertise to deal with every type of dispute.
Forsters are delighted to be launching our Vineyards & Wineries practice. The cross-departmental team draws upon our strengths from across the firm, a combination of expertise that is rare if not unique in the market. The increasing number of vineyards we look after complements our exceptional book of landed estates, and is testament to our ability to look after landowning clients, whatever their business and whatever challenges they face.
Since 26 March 2020 when we last surveyed how mediation, arbitration and litigation were being conducted in the current circumstances, matters have evolved at a rapid pace, particularly in the English court system. We have seen unprecedented use of technology as the courts focus on getting business done as usual so far as possible.
In this short blog post, Dispute Resolution Partner, Andrew Head, and Senior Solicitor, Bryan Shacklady, take a look at the implications of the coronavirus lockdown for dispute resolution, focusing on three key dispute resolution mechanisms: litigation, arbitration and mediation.
