Rostron Carlyle offer a wide scope of dispute resolution services. We conduct legal analysis and strategic review, make assessments of dispute resolution options, work with expert witnesses and prepare documentation for court. We can also make court appearances, implement case management plans and act as representation in settlement conferences and mediations.

We focus on making early, commercial resolutions to disputes, rather than prolonged and costly litigation. Our litigation lawyers continue to advise our clients on their strategic options throughout the entire dispute resolution process. We consider the potential costs and benefits of pursuing or contesting issues to our clients. We aim to reduce costs, provide flexibility and facilitate communication between both parties. However, when litigation is necessary, we are recognised for our professional and uncompromising representation.
