Counsel’s Opinions

Relied on by both companies and courts as the definitive advice on the law, Counsel’s Opinions can be used in a number of ways, for instance to gauge the value and worth of a claim, to advise upon the laws application to a dispute.

After reviewing a matter, we can produce considered, expert opinions on the law.


Arbitration is a time-tested, cost-effective alternative to litigation – the parties choose to opt to resolve their dispute by way of private resolution instead of appearing before a court.

Arbitration occurs with the submission of a dispute to one or more impartial third party persons in order to obtain a decision, known as an “award.” Awards are made in writing and are generally final and binding on the parties in the case.

Main Principals:

  • Arbitration is consensual

Arbitration can only take place if both parties have agreed to it 0 mostly by was of an arbitration clause in a contract

  • The parties choose the arbitrator(s)

From 1 to three arbitrators, whom the parties can stipulate must have specified experienced and qualifications

  • Arbitration is neutral & confidential

Parties to the dispute can chose a neutral law, venue and language of the  arbitration. This allows them to ensure that no party enjoys a home court advantage

  • Arbitration decision is generally final and easy to enforce
