Dispute Resolution: Keeping things simple…

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Defending a client should always mean going above and beyond. Not just fighting a corner but, where necessary, rewriting the rules of the game. Especially when your client gets hit with a £50m+ claim.

In this landmark case, our client, a FTSE 100 company, faced a software licensing dispute with a Fortune 500 technology group – and we needed to think laterally. Things came to a head when the opposing side sought full disclosure of every single document relating to recent IT projects. Bringing to the court huge volumes of records, including highly complex R&D, would have taken several servers and roomfuls of reference material. Not to mention a staggering amount of management time and legal fees – in the region of £1m-£2m. Instead, we developed an imaginative alternative that would bring clarity and cut costs.
