KDV aims to resolve conflicts between business partners or shareholders as early on as possible while preserving critical business relationships. We recognize that litigation and arbitration are not only time consuming and expensive, they are also highly contentious processes that often compound the problem. KDV attorneys work to settle conflicts between shareholders and business partners informally through the negotiation process. When advisable, our lawyers also use mediation to resolve disputes in an effort to avoid the time and expense associated with arbitration and litigation. However, when a compromise is unattainable, we are well positioned to take a more aggressive stance.
