Mason Hayes Solicitors

Dispute Resolution

For all clients, the greatest importance is on diminishing the effects of a dispute and resolving the issues as effectively and efficiently as possible. Mason Hayes advises organisations of all sizes and strongly believes that clients gain added value from the firm’s comprehensive sector knowledge and commercial judgment.

How we can help

Mason Hayes’ aim is to extricate clients from their commercial disputes at the optimum point when they obtain maximum financial recovery as Claimants or as Defendants, with minimum financial exposure. Alongside conventional litigation, adjudication and arbitration, Mason Hayes is also experienced in all methods of alternative dispute resolution including mediation, neutral evaluation and expert determination. Mason Hayes works in partnership with clients to formulate a bespoke strategy based on the client’s overall commercial and financial objectives.

Combining Mason Hayes’ knowledge of corporate law with our litigators’ experience in dispute resolution and commercial strategy, allows the firm’s lawyers to work with its clients to ensure from the outset that they have the best possible drafted legal documentation. Using litigators’ input in the drafting process to assist in equipping clients with the best possible legal agreements, the commercial position and prospects of success of the firm’s clients are reinforced in the event of a dispute.

Equally, Mason Hayes assists clients in managing and mitigating risk in their organisations as an important part of their commercial and business strategy. In all cases the firm’s litigators work with clients to formulate a bespoke programme having regard to their overall exposure to risk.

Our Experience

However, not all matters can be settled or managed. A commercial dispute can be an intense and confrontational process subject to considerable risk and uncertainty. Having the skills and knowledge to prepare a claim and to fight it to a successful determination is a key attribute of the litigation team and the tactical and strategic considerations they deploy. Our litigators possess both the expertise and commercial ability to distinguish between what is required and what is possible in each particular dispute.
