Dispute Resolution

Winning battles and wars

Dispute resolution requires a combination of legal skill, relevant experience, appropriate force and determination, as well as tact and wisdom. Over-emphasizing one or two of these characteristics at the expense of others can lead to winning the battles but losing the war.

The Gunstons dispute resolution attorneys are always alive to what is needed to resolve a dispute in your favor. Sometimes it involves an all-out litigation offensive, where every strategy is used to gain the upper hand. Other times, and sometimes as litigation takes its course, it is advisable to pursue a “win-win” approach through mediation.

We believe that part of our duty to you is to advise on alternative strategies, to place you in the best possible position towards realising your interests in resolving disputes. This includes the ability to offer specialist advice regarding the strategy in settling disputes in the quickest, most cost-effective manner.
