Dispute Resolution

 
From high-profile civil litigation to sensitive personal claims, clients turn to One Legal time after time because they know that our litigation lawyers will provide creative and result-oriented dispute resolution counsel.

Whether our clients are asserting their rights or defending a claim, we will engage our clients to carefully assess the facts and merits of the case and determine the underlying risks at an early stage. We understand that the clients' primary aim is to avoid expensive and time-consuming litigation or arbitration where possible. We endeavor to resolve the matter through using available alternatives such as negotiation and mediation.

When litigation or arbitration is unavoidable, our lawyers have the confidence, experience and skills to advocate for clients successfully in the courtroom or tribunal. Our lawyers have handled cases in the Subordinate Courts, the High Court and the Court of Appeal. Apart from the courts of law, we also represent clients in the Labour Court and at arbitration tribunals; for example those under the ICC and the SIAC. From the outset of each matter, we counsel clients on the possible courses of action that will achieve their legal and business goals. We also advise clients on the risks and potential rewards of litigation or arbitration. If circumstances dictate, we are prepared to litigate aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome.

Developing a Winning Strategy

For our corporate clients, we help them develop a strategy that is consistent with their commercial goals - minimizing reputation risk, maintaining business relationships, and most importantly, resolution of the dispute as swiftly and cost effectively as possible, with minimal disruption to the business.
