Seek advice early – it will usually save costs and time later on. Obtaining advice as soon as a potential dispute occurs can often prevent things escalating.
Keep notes, paperwork, documents and a timeline of events. Memories of events over time are often not reliable and documentary evidence can be key.
Be clear about what it is you want to achieve. Get clear advice at the outset of a matter about whether your goals are achievable – and the likely costs involved– so you can make an informed decision as to whether to invest the time, energy and resources into pursuing that objective.
