Anthony is available to give advice of all areas of his specialist expertise.
Anthony is a seasoned litigator – see the page “Profile” on this site for information about the wide variety of cases in which he has acted as counsel.
The days when Barristers had two roles – to give advice and to argue cases in Court – have gone.
Litigation has three major drawbacks: it is generally slow, expensive, and unpredictable.
It is common for disputing parties to recognise the three major drawbacks of litigation and to try to agree to resolve their dispute in some other way.
Mediation has become the most popular alternative. A mediator uses his/her skills to try to get disputing parties to agree upon an acceptable solution. It is a voluntary process. The mediator can’t force anyone to do anything. Despite these drawbacks, the process has proven to be successful at securing acceptable solutions. Mediations tend to be quick and cheap when compared to the cost of litigation.
Anthony is skilled at assisting clients in mediations.
Mediation involves compromise. Litigants who want a more principled way to resolve their dispute can appoint a lawyer of known competency in the area of dispute and agree to accept his/her opinion as a binding determination. Anthony is available to give binding determinations.
