Many clients are hopeful that they will be able to settle their dispute without having to go to court, and in such cases, we will endeavour to make this happen. We are often able to help clients resolve their employment law issues in a few months (sometimes even weeks) without having to resort to formal litigation. At the risk of stating the obvious, however, the likelihood of a settlement often hinges on the willingness of the parties involved to negotiate. Having said that, in our many years of experience, it is only a small minority of our clients’ cases that actually end up in court. In any case where we believe a settlement to be a viable and desirable option for our client, we will work actively with you and the other party to make this happen.
