Disputes & proceedings

Whether you are placing a major order, or initiating a collaboration with a partner: doing business involves taking risks.  Conflicts can arise from various sources. The lawyers at DVAN help entrepreneurs to resolve a wide range of business disputes. Where possible, we strive to resolve problems without the intervention of a court.  In some cases, it may prove impossible to reach a mutual agreement. Legal proceedings can then offer a solution.  

If a dispute results in legal proceedings, it will be crucial to get to the heart of the matter and determine your desired outcome as quickly as possible. Our lawyers will consult with you to determine a strategy, so that we can start resolving the issues quickly and effectively.

Procedural resources
Procedural law offers a broad array of instruments for the rapid and effective resolution of conflicts. For example, we can seek a prejudgement in order to secure your opportunities for redress where possible. This will help to prevent situations where you have no access to redress despite a court ruling in your favour. A preliminary witness examination can help offer the necessary clarity in an early stage and expedite the resolution of your conflict. You can petition the court to take emergency measures in the short term by initiating interlocutory proceedings, while the right of inquiry offers opportunities to resolve disputes between shareholders and break the deadlock these often create within the company.
