BACK to DISPUTE AVOIDANCE & CORPORATE LAW
At Beacon, we believe that prevention is better than cure. As such, dispute avoidance is very much our priority when advising clients; be it while helping a client set up a business entity or while helping a client resolve a conflict.
We wish to change that mindset. We want to help our clients lay a solid foundation for their business, by understanding both their short-term and long-term visions and drafting sound employment contracts, shareholder agreements or business contracts, so that their businesses can grow without the unnecessary distraction of potentially costly litigation.
It has been said that "it is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls" (Aristophanes 446 - 386 B.C.). Thus, very often, clients come to us only when a dispute has already arisen; by which time great expense, time and resources would probably have to be expended to resolve the dispute.
