Dispute Resolution Lawyers

Our clients acknowledge our commitment in always obtaining the best solution to their respective commercial interests, whether within the ambit of negotiation or of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), avoiding the recourse to Court, and whether they already are within the ambit of litigation or arbitration.

Our wide experience allows us to advise in all areas of dispute resolution. We are accustomed to search for innovating solutions and to define strategies in view of one sole goal: the satisfaction of our clients’ purposes.

The area of dispute resolution is divided in:

  • Litigation
  • Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Criminal Litigation

 

Acknowledgement
