Russell Legal partner with our business and individual clients to achieve practical resolution to complex commercial disputes. We are constantly mindful that our clients are anxious about the litigation process, the cost, and the result. As such, we attempt to first resolve disputes without the need for protracted litigation, both informally and through alternative dispute resolution proceedings. However, when pre-litigation dispute resolution is not possible, we are prepared and equipped to aggressively prosecute or defend our clients’ rights through the Court system.
