Our team works closely with our technology, commercial, outsourcing, and intellectual property teams to provide a fully scalable service.
In many cases, pursuing a formal dispute resolution process (e.g. court action or arbitration) will not provide the best value for clients or meet their commercial requirements or goals, particularly where the dispute involves an ongoing IT project or commercial relationship. Many technology disputes are better suited to being resolved by alternative dispute resolution and we run negotiations and mediations to resolve complex and commercially sensitive disputes.
