Cost Control Guide

With challenging market conditions and an increasing reluctance to expend cash reserves on potentially costly litigation, the need for banks and commercial entities to properly manage their legal costs budgets is increasingly important. Businesses are becoming more aware of the need to manage litigation cost and risk and are looking for innovative costs solutions to help them remove legal costs from their balance sheet or at least to manage them with an element of budgetary certainty.

At the same time, there have been a number of important recent developments in how international courts and arbitral tribunals deal with the changing landscape of litigation funding, opening the door to a variety of potential cost solutions.

Addleshaw Goddard remains at the forefront of these changes, delivering alternative funding solutions as the costs environment develops, as well as providing its experience and expertise to resolve your dispute in the most cost and time efficient manner.

This guide provides a brief overview of different funding and costs options that Addleshaw Goddard is able to offer and sets out how these options (whether alone or in combination with each other) can offer businesses the budgetary certainty they need in an increasingly uncertain global market.

Managing Corporate Relationships

Having seen a significant increase in the number of Joint Venture (“JV”) disputes in the GCC, Addleshaw Goddard’s Commercial Litigation and Corporate teams have pooled their expertise to provide a JV ‘toolkit’ which reviews the most common causes of JV disputes and how they can be avoided.  Whilst the focus of this guide is JV disputes, the lessons learned and the pitfalls to be avoided apply equally across all manner of corporate relationships in the GCC from distribution agreements to franchise arrangements, and from mergers to acquisitions.

Debt Recovery

As market conditions in the GCC remain challenging due to a combination of weak global growth, the continuation of low oil prices and the straining of fiscal policies, the need for financial institutions and business owners alike to collect cash and realise their debts has never been more compelling.

It is for this reason that we at Addleshaw Goddard have assembled a regional team of dedicated commercial debt recovery specialists to assist you in managing your debt portfolio and recovering money you are owed quickly, efficiently and with the support of the latest advancements in technology.

Taking advantage of our extensive team and unique HighQ case management product, we can now offer you that all important fixed fee budget certainty to chase down your debtors and, if necessary, pursue legal proceedings in the appropriate forum.

Addleshaw Goddard’s experienced team in the GCC ensures a strategic approach to debt recovery, relying on a significant investment in innovative technology and know-how to achieve the quick resolution of disputes rather than engaging in a protracted and costly process. This means you can focus on what you do best whilst we pursue your debtors without any hidden financial surprises.
