www.Lawfuel.com


LAWFUEL - The Legal Jobs Newswire - Lowndes Associates has won the Elementary Solutions Litigation and Dispute Resolution Award at the 2007 New Zealand Law Awards.

Lowndes Associates were also successful in the following categories:

• First runner up (silver) in the Intellectual Property Law Award; and
• Second runner up (bronze) in the Boutique Law Firm of the Year Award.

Mark Lowndes, Partner of Lowndes Associates, has said, “We are honoured that our dispute resolution work has been recognised by our clients. Litigation and dispute resolution are important parts of our practice in relation to our general corporate & commercial law clients as well as in our specialist areas such as intellectual property and insolvency.”

“Our approach is distinctive. We understand that litigation is by no means formulaic, and we field the best possible team to resolve each dispute through the most appropriate channel, with an intense focus on commercially sensible outcomes.”

“Litigation is not always the most suitable strategy, and we also achieve excellent outcomes for clients through alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as mediation and arbitration – a trend which is growing as delays to court fixture dates increase. These techniques allow us to develop more creative – and often more financially viable – solutions for clients than litigation sometimes affords.”
