CIVIL & CRIMINAL LITIGATION AND HUMAN RIGHTS LAW

The role of the negotiating solicitor is to explore settlements which could never be achieved in a Court, to provide ideas for alternatively resolving the dispute which could not be enforced by any Court and to think laterally to promote investigation by the parties of other forms of settlement which they themselves have not contemplated. Subsequently, in accordance with our commitment to resolving disputes before a trial, it is always our policy to enter into correspondence with the other party to give them a chance to negotiate a compromise to the dispute. If successful, such a compromise will save the parties time and money and will save the court the inconvenience of formally resolving the dispute. This is obviously a cost-cutting measure aimed to settle the dispute without recourse to litigation. Therefore, when negotiating, we have a proven track of success in reaching rewarding and fair “out of court settlements ” for our clients.
