Dispute Resolution

Effective dispute resolution involves a fine balance between negotiation and taking a firm stance when required.  In every case, Jaswal Johnston LLP knows strong relationships are the key to success.

The term 'dispute resolution' doesn't always mean 'confrontation'.  It can often be working together to find a solution or compromise acceptable to all parties which can lead to new, or stronger, business relationships.

 

However, there are matters where the only course of action is to seek judgement from a court of law or arbitration.  In every circumstance, Jaswal Johnston's Dispute Resolution team is on-hand to provide effective, pragmatic, timely advice.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

Wherever possible, Jaswal Johnston LLP will help clients avoid costly proceedings to resolve commercial disputes - whether relating to financial or contractual agreements.  Our intention is to resolve matters through direct negotiation but, on occasion, arbitrators may also be needed. In major cases, we have represented clients in the London Court of International Arbitration.

Test Cases and Litigation

There are some legal disputes which can only be resolved by taking the matter before a judge.  Jaswal Johnston has built a reputation for working on particularly complex, unusual, or legal 'test' cases, often involving international organisations or individuals living abroad, and usually for claims of £1m or more. Some results have set legal precedents. We have represented clients at the the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords.
