When involved in a dispute it is always advisable to obtain an opinion on the merits of the claim, based on an analysis of the documentation substantiating the claim and the opponent’s legal arguments. This is particularly important in order to make sure that the most profitable choice is made having regard to the client’s interest.
Clients may request the intervention of specialised external consultants (e. g. engineers, financial advisors, etc.), which will provide a more complete view on particularly complex matter. The assessment will also comprise a statement of the costs associated with the lawyer’s intervention, the specialised external advisor’s intervention and an estimate of the time required to resolve the dispute.
