Litigation & Arbitration


Litigation & Arbitration


Even the best intentions between contracting parties can result in a dispute. Legal action may also be required to respond to a regulatory order, or to deal with an anonymous party over the internet. Disputes can also arise when an IT vendor provides a service in good faith that happens to cause harm.

In such cases, resolution may occur through settlement discussions, negotiated mediation, private arbitration, or court litigation.

Dispute resolution is a dynamic process. Anticipated positions can shift, evidence admissibility can turn a case, and the background of the decision maker at any given stage can matter.

This area of practice requires:

  • knowledge of the relevant dispute resolution rules;
  • appreciation of facts and the rules of evidence;
  • understanding of the particular domain at issue and the law underlying the dispute;
  • adeptness with anticipating counter arguments; and
  • skill in written and oral advocacy.

We isolate the core issues in dispute with an initial case assessment, and focus on those issues while collecting evidence. Throughout this process, we anticipate foreseeable shifts in the factual and legal landscape that can change the litigation dynamic.
