Our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department’s strength lies in our understanding of the commercial needs of our clients. The Litigation Department works mainly on commercial and civil litigation matters but handles a small volume of crime work as well.
The Dispute Resolution Practitioners at Goodwins have handled a wide range of commercial disputes involving joint-venture disputes, construction claims, breach of contract, negligence (including professional and medical negligence), sale of goods, intellectual property litigation, insurance claims (including personal injury claims), real estate disputes and also wills, probate and estate disputes.
Goodwins’ Dispute Resolution Practitioners always seek to achieve quick and cost-effective outcomes for clients. Protracted litigation is not favoured and tolerated only when it is beneficial to our clients. In practice, when it is possible to conclude a litigation case with the use of appropriate interlocutory procedures, we are always ready to use these procedures to secure a swift and cost-efficient outcome.
Goodwins’ Dispute Resolution Practitioners believe in the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (‘ADR’) and act as counsel for clients in arbitration hearings as well as in mediations. Several of the lawyers at Goodwins are qualified Arbitrators and experienced Mediators.
Goodwins’ Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practitioners will manage matters and guide a client through the less then pleasant course of dispute resolution with the aim of delivering an end result which is in the best interest of the client.
Goodwins Law Corporation’s Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department reflects the firm’s general Corporate, Commercial Law emphasis in its capabilities. Goodwins represents both corporations and individuals in our litigation work.
