Litigation & Arbitration

Dispute Resolution

Avoiding disputes starts with the careful drafting of contracts. Often, however, they cannot be avoided entirely, as, for example, a party's strategic interests may also change. Settling disputes requires sound judgement and the advice of a dispute resolution specialist. This expert should be able to expertly assess both the enforceability of conflicting interests and the legal framework.

Not every dispute has to be settled in court. There are a number of alternatives, such as arbitration, mediation and out-of-court settlements. If a dispute cannot be settled amicably, it should be pursued as vigorously as possible with the help of an experienced dispute resolution lawyer.

Sabadello Legal's dispute resolution lawyers will review the possible courses of action and develop a strategy suitable for your situation.
