Resolution and recovery expert

When faced with a dispute, when is the right time to call in a lawyer to help resolve the situation? Michael’s response would be when:

  • an argument is beginning to escalate or is becoming complicated
  • the dispute is between business owners, shareholders and commercial partners
  • a dispute has arisen over a contract, property or other assets
  • personal and corporate insolvency, and property litigation is involved.

Since 2006, Michael has been resolving disputes for clients in a no-nonsense way. He believes involving his team early in any potential dispute is key to bringing about a timely and cost-effective solution.

Michael leads HM3 Legal’s Resolution and Recovery team, takes a robust approach, and is committed to finding commercial outcomes for business clients and individuals he acts for.

Commercial dispute resolution and mediation

Understanding that complex disputes can keep clients awake at night, Michael is a keen advocate of Alternative Dispute Resolution, potentially avoiding costly and time-consuming litigation. He is also a trained commercial mediator having qualified with the Society of Mediators in 2020. As an example of a successful resolution, Michael has recently settled a long-standing construction dispute through mediation on behalf of an international trust client. This involved a dispute with contractors that had been ongoing for 11 years. With Michael’s involvement, the successful outcome provided certainty, crystallising the position for the trust client, allowing works at the property to be completed.

More than commercial dispute resolution

Michael understands the strain that can be placed on anyone involved in a dispute. He and the HM3 team pride themselves on their ability to get to the root of any issue. They listen and act; not the other way round. This ensures that the advice provided is not just on the merit of a case being brought or resisted, but also the full picture.

Considerations when resolving a dispute include the likely cost of taking action, and the longer-term impact this could have on any business involved.

Are you a business or individual facing a dispute? Talk confidentially with Michael and his team about the situation you are facing. Every day his team is providing clear, straight-forward and practical advice to help untangle clients from tricky disputes.
