Irrespective of whether you are a person, a company, a director, a shareholder, an ultra high net worth individual, or a multi-jurisdictional institution, all of our clients have access to our dedicated, dynamic and vastly experienced advocates who will stand by you and provide common-sense advice, as well as taking a pro-active, pragmatic approach to find quick, cost effective solutions to your problems.
DQ’s aim is to minimise costs, damage and disruption to you or your business. We are acutely aware of the cost, in terms of money and energy, that our clients are subjected to if the issues are not fully understood at an early stage; this allows us to provide commercially astute advice to our clients. We are aware that none of our clients really wants to be involved in litigation and so we will always consider other possible methods of reaching a swift conclusion, for example, negotiation, mediation or arbitration.
We have one of the Island's largest and most experienced dispute resolution teams, which has acted on high profile cases concerning corporate and partnership disputes, mediation, insurance and professional negligence, trust and estate disputes, as well as advising and acting on insolvency, regulatory and shipping matters.
