The international nature of our practice means we frequently deal with cross-border jurisdiction disputes. This occurs when one party wants a dispute heard in one country and the other wants it heard in a different country.
One of the consequences of globalisation has been an increase in the number of multinational corporations. This in turn has led to a growing number of disputes across multiple jurisdictions. The increase in mobility and communications between countries is also a factor leading to a corresponding increase in the complexity of jurisdictional disputes.
For clients caught up in international disputes it remains critically important to choose the most favorable jurisdiction for the litigation or arbitration to take place. We work in close cooperation with law firms in other countries and can advise on the best choice of jurisdiction.
Our Isle of Man Attorneys understand that clients are often concerned about the cost of being involved in a dispute so we will explain the likely costs involved in managing your case at each stage.
Please see our Alternative Dispute Resolution section for further information on the processes and techniques that can be used for disagreeing parties to resolve their differences as an alternative to incurring the expense of going to court.
