Andrew works with small and medium-sized local businesses to help them resolve legal disputes. As a business owner, litigation can be an incredibly stressful and costly experience. Andrew will work with you to ensure that any legal disputes encountered by your business will be resolved on terms that are best for you. Whether that involves pursuing alternative dispute resolution (such as negotiating a settlement or attending neutral, third-party mediation) or going to court, Andrew will lead you through the process.
