A court judgment or arbitration award is worthless to a client unless it can be turned into tangible financial compensation. Too often have we witnessed cases being run where there is no real prospect of recovery. While there may be occasions where a client needs to show their strength in order to avoid future disputes and maintain a strong market reputation, lawyers (if they are truly valued business advisors) must ensure that they are always acting in their client’s best interests.
For this reason we specialise in jurisdictional and enforcement issues so that both we and our clients are fully aware of the prospects and difficulties involved in making an actual recovery.
In any new instruction which involves the prospect of litigation or arbitration, our first priority is security for the claim.
