Not getting into the Courtroom in the first place is often the best plan.
Or, if you do have to go there, how do you narrow the issues to focus on what really matters?
Or, if already embroiled in the Court process, what is the best way through it - continue to trial, negotiation or mediation?
Are you and your legal team on the right track?
I provide opinions and strategic advice on these matters. I am asked sometimes to step in at the mediation phase, to assist resolution.
I provide opinion advice to trustees to help them navigate their way through trust administration and brewing disputes, in a way that will calm troubled waters and minimise their personal costs exposure.
I also am engaged as an expert witness on matters of New Zealand trust law, in foreign Courts.
