Much of our work involves corporate disputes such as breach of contract and warranty cases, disputes over the proper construction of agreements, shareholder disputes, disputes over joint ventures, and post-mergers and acquisitions disputes. In addition, we regularly advise on corporate governance related litigation, for example, shareholder activism battles, disputes on public take-over bids and squeeze-out procedures.
We recognise that prevention is better than cure and regularly advise clients on risk management issues. We know that corporations today want lawyers who understand their business and we take the time to do just that, combining sector expertise with a broad geographical reach. Our experience shows us a large number of corporate transactions trigger litigation and require support in the preparatory and execution phases. We appreciate that an approach to a particular legal problem needs to be not only the best solution to that specific problem but also one that does not harm other aspects of the client's business.
