Dispute Negotiations & Resolution
Milestone has significant training and experience in negotiating disputes amongst private and public parties for over 15 years in simple and highly complex situations. Our consulting services bring to bear our legal backgrounds, which include settling disputes prior to commencement of protracted legal processes and trying cases in court.
We help prepare clients for dispute negotiations and pre-litigation discussions by reviewing and probing every relevant aspect of a dispute to achieve a complete understanding of the issues and goals involved. We also assist in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of dispute positions, prior to, or during, the engagement of a law firm to handle a dispute.
The resources of our allied law firms are also available to provide formal legal analysis and drive a dispute to resolution.
Milestone is particularly experienced in resolving disputes, or potential disputes, between EPC firms and project owners before costly litigation disrupts a project. Milestone’s understanding of all stakeholders’ interests and contract issues provides significant added value for our EPC-related clients who are headed toward a dispute with the supplier or owner.
