When providing legal services we focus primarily on the result, being the client’s satisfaction. We are aware of the fact that in case of a conflict of interests a dialogue is one of most effective solutions leading to its achievement. Therefore, leading of negotiations in two or more sided relationships of any kind (including collective bargaining) forms important part of our practice.

Considering long-year experience of the lawyers of ECOVIS DT LEGAL, we can conclude that the identification of mutual interests of both parties and proposal of creative solutions for controversial interests are key in the process of reverting a dispute and satisfying the client with no necessity to solve the issue via court.
