Legal Services - Dispute Resolution
Our primary aim is to help clients avoid litigation whenever possible but where unavoidable we focus on the commercial objective. At Eugene F. Collins, we believe that litigation is about solving problems and providing solutions.
By assessing the situation at the outset and recommending an appropriate strategy, we can ensure that the dispute resolution legal process can help meet the commercial goals and objectives of our client whether through trial, negotiation and settlement, arbitration or alternative methods.
Our Dispute Resolution Law team has proven experience in providing an efficient, client-focused service across the broad spectrum of litigation issues to include Arbitrations and Mediations.
The firm has also acted in some of the largest and high profile cases to come before the Irish Courts.
