Sam Major is a solicitor who advises in both High Court and County Court dispute resolution matters in areas regarding contractual disputes (including franchise arrangements) as well as director and shareholder disputes. His approach to litigation is based around providing strategic and commercial advice, managing risk and ensuring that the client is aware of their position before committing to what may be a lengthy litigation process. Sam believes that mediation is a useful tool to help come to a potentially early resolution without incurring significant costs and time for the client.
