Personal statement

Mitch understands that corporations would prefer to focus on their core business rather than becoming embroiled in protracted legal disputes before the courts, particularly when either as a plaintiff or defendant, litigation is not about making a profit but mitigating loss.

His emphasis in litigation is to achieve a palatable commercial solution the client can live with early in the matter. It’s good to remember that 80% of something is better than 100% of nothing, particularly when it is not unknown in litigation for the legal costs of both parties to exceed the amount being fought over.

Unfortunately, there are parties that are just plainly belligerent and uncompromising. In those circumstances the focus is on ensuring the case is thoroughly prepared for and presented at trial to ensure the best prospects for a successful outcome.

His key legal achievements include carriage of litigious matters before as follows:
