In such cases, an initial analysis of the type and level of liability is carried out. Following this, we generally propose a consulting agreement with a forfeit fee on a lump sum basis. In all such circumstances, however, our aim remains the same; maximize the benefit for the client while keeping the financial cost as low as possible.

Specialised training performed by some of the lawyers in the firm allows us to provide clients solid support in cases of media reconciliation, both in the event that this is required by law, and in cases where it is appropriate to make an attempt to do so, even if not required by law.
