Dispute resolution

It’s an unavoidable fact of life that disputes will sometimes occur in both business and personal matters. When these disputes do occur, you need to feel certain that you have a team of specialists on your side. Lodders’ dispute resolution solicitors work tirelessly on behalf of our clients, finding a speedy and effective solution to their problem.

We will help you understand all your options and then agree with you the best strategy, keeping the need to protect your reputation and relationships at the forefront. We believe that it’s not always necessary to resort to court action to overcome differences. Although traditional litigation still plays a key role, satisfaction can often be achieved through a process called ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution), which includes arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. During this process, we’ll work with you to achieve your goal in less time, and at a lower cost.

ADR means alternative dispute resolution.

Traditional litigation can be a time-consuming, costly, and stressful process and therefore we readily advise our clients on other options available, whilst ensuring that these are suited to their goals and circumstances.

We believe that it’s not always necessary to resort to court action to overcome differences. Although traditional litigation still plays a key role, satisfaction can often be achieved through a process called ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution), which includes arbitration, mediation and negotiation. During this process, we’ll work with you to achieve your goal in less time, and at a lower cost.

ADR consists of negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

We will ensure you understand what the terms of the settlement agreement mean and how they will affect you, and that you obtain the most favourable compensatory amount for the termination of your employment in the most efficient manner. We will also ensure the document is drafted so as to protect your interests and, in so far as is possible, remove any restrictions on your future conduct.

In our experience, the production of a settlement agreement is often the start of the negotiation and not the end. After all, a party’s first offer is rarely its best offer!

Here at Lodders, we have forged a strong reputation acting for employees who have found themselves in a position where parties are seeking to terminate the employment. We can offer fast, effective and focused advice to secure the best exit agreement.

Specialists in senior level and director settlement agreements, our team of dedicated lawyers can help you negotiate the best exit package, including bonuses, restrictive covenants and shareholdings.

Our work in this area was recognised by legal industry bible the Legal 500 2017 report, which stated that Lodders ‘is particularly adept at acting for senior directors, high-net-worth individuals and former sportsmen. The team has in-depth knowledge of termination issues, particularly exit packages, in relation to senior employees, directors and stakeholders.

In negotiating the terms of any severance, we will always also seek to protect our client’s position and their ability to acquire alternative employment with the assistance of a solution which not only includes an optimum commercial outcome and the most compensation possible; but that includes a favourable reference and the absence of restrictions on the client’s post-employment conduct.

Our substantial experience also assists us in structuring the termination package in order to provide the most attractive and efficient conclusion in terms of the tax payable (or not payable) by our client in connection with the compensation for loss of employment.

Our experienced team will help you understand all your options and then agree with you the best strategy to take to achieve the desired goal, keeping the need to protect your reputation and relationships at the forefront.
