Why Us?

Experience is essential and provides a sense of judgment which is important. While knowledge is essential it is equally important that the facts and evidence are on point. A competent Arbitration lawyer represents traits of professionalism, diplomacy, efficiency, and consistency. Dispute resolution is not an easy task and requires detailed planning and execution strategies. Thus, your arbitration lawyer should also be a good project manager as arbitration is a 12 to 24-month project that they must bring in on time and budget. It is essential for the arbitration lawyer to be skilled at writing. It is supposed to be crisp and focused. Every email/letter must be clear and consistent over the duration of the case, culminating in a clearly written and well-substantiated award. It is appreciated if the arbitration lawyer has knowledge of diverse fields such as commercial arbitrations and others. In law, there is no one solution but the ability to compare multiple possibilities and narrow them down to the most favorable outcome is what assures victory.
