Here at Lenhoff & Hotz, we are acutely aware of the costs and risks associated with litigation, particularly in the Superior Courts. Consequently, we use our best endeavours to achieve an outcome in matters managed by us well before the trial stage which is the most expensive part of the litigation process. Historically, a large majority of matters managed by us (more than 90%) have been resolved at an early stage of the proceedings to our clients’ satisfaction. To that end, we have recourse to various methods of dispute resolution such as informal settlement negotiations with opposing parties and their legal representatives at an early stage in the proceedings, mediations and pre-trial conferences convened before court-appointed Registrars.
Additionally, our clients are provided with regular reports and updates in order to enable them to make informed decisions concerning the progress of their matters and to instruct us accordingly.
In short, it is our mission carefully to guide our clients through the litigation process to try and achieve the best results for them at an early stage of the proceedings. Taking a matter to trial is a last resort.
As commercial lawyers, we seek to provide clear and concise advice and sensible and cost-efficient solutions. We are able to assist in various aspects of commercial law seeking always to preserve and advance the best interests of our clients. We guarantee personal caring service coupled with reasonable rates so that our clients achieve the best possible outcomes.
We offer personalised, cost-efficient and effective legal services to corporations, large and small businesses, other commercial enterprises and individuals.
We welcome agency work from Law Firms in the Eastern States and overseas.
