Sectors in which we have a particularly strong track record of providing dispute resolution services include construction and infrastructure, financial institutions and services, life sciences, energy, technology, media and telecommunications, and consumer products. Most importantly, apart from the dispute resolution services we offer our clients sophisticated dispute prevention solutions as well as early case assessment services by the use of a cutting edge software tool called CMS Evidence
