As a brand grows, it is almost inevitable that disputes will arise. Relationships with local or overseas partners will break down. A brand can find that a new market it wishes to develop contains local companies with trademark rights that conflict with its own. There are countless ways disputes can manifest themselves in the course of a company’s international evolution.
Part of the service Stephens provides is the management of these disputes. From the selection of the correct local counsel through to acting as advocates ourselves, we work quickly and cost-effectively to ensure that our clients’ interests are protected.
We are also well aware of the drain on management time and other resources that litigation can involve, so we seek to negotiate and settle disputes wherever possible.
If settlement is not possible, we ensure that our clients’ cases are presented with an absolute passion. We have successfully managed and represented our clients’ interests in litigation and arbitration across the globe.
