Prevention and Resolution of Disputes
Our primary aim is to prevent disputes. Based on our vast experience, we can help our client at a very early stage to avoid potential dispute, whereby it can save costs and time that are needed otherwise for often long-lasting procedures with an uncertain outcome. Even when a dispute is already threatening, we can help our client to gain a better position in case of a later dispute and thereby better chances of success. Therefore, we draw special attention to risk management and prevention of conflict situations already at the stage of formation and implementation of legal transactions. In order to enable our clients to recognise by themselves potential conflict situations as soon as possible and respond to them adequately, we offer them specially designed education courses and trainings.
In cases when a dispute still arises, we first identify the goals together with the client, and then based on an early assessment of dispute and the position of both parties we cooperate in searching for the most adequate and most efficient way how to achieve these goals. These are often different procedures of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation. Based on extensive experience we form a strategy of dispute resolution, for which it is most likely that it will lead to the desired outcome.
When it is not possible to avoid a dispute before court, arbitration or another authority, the clients can rely on our team specialised in such procedures, which has vast experience in representing clients in all kinds of procedures, both before national courts and administrative authorities as well as before international and national arbitrations.
The experiences of our team for dispute resolution comprise representation of clients in proceedings arising from (non)implementation of contracts, compensation relationships (among others, in relation to violations of competition law, mergers and acquisitions, public procurement, banking and financial transactions, liability of management and supervision authorities), construction and infrastructure projects, corporate relations, infringements of intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, copyrights, rights on databases, unfair competition), employment relationships, mergers, exclusion of minority shareholders, bankruptcy procedures, measures of regulatory authorities etc.
Through different procedures of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, we offer our clients also alternative options of dispute resolution. With long-standing experience and expertise, we can assist as independent experts in finding acceptable and future-oriented solutions. We design procedure rules and the most suitable manner of finding a solution especially for our clients.
