Successfully Resolving a Commercial Dispute
Many people think of dispute resolution solely in terms of litigation. While that is certainly one option, there are several others.
Before undertaking commercial litigation, Jeppesen Gray Sakai PS carefully analyzes the situation in risk/reward terms. We also look at ways to resolve the dispute in a manner favorable to our client, without need for an actual lawsuit. These include negotiation, mediation and arbitration, the use of which can achieve an acceptable outcome in a cost-effective manner.
In other cases, when the risks of inaction are high or when we are forced to do so by the actions of the other party, Jeppesen Gray Sakai PS considers the litigation option. We explain the risks and possible outcomes with our clients, and explain the potential costs.
When the client decides to go forward, we will vigorously pursue or defend the client’s interests in the courtroom.
